Only one for sucker punching somewhere out of no where?  Well…maybe next time

I’ve often said, when Lucic wants to, he can be an absolute horse.  Of course, most of the time, he’s a very specific part of a horse.

I wouldn’t call it out of nowhere, you slash someone like Lucic on the exposed forearm expect something in return.  Now did Lucic go overboard?  We are talking about Lucic so yes he did.  He should have just stopped after the slash on the back of Connauton’s legs.  Connauton was also challenged to drop the gloves by Andreoff as well after the incident.  Needless to say the Kings as a whole were not happy with Connauton.

The slash to Lucic’s arm is kind of a joke.  I mean, his hand was down a foot off the ice, so, if you are going to swing at the puck there is a good chance you’ll make contact with the guy who’s hand is a foot above it.

Connauton did slash his hand it was the quick downward stroke that looked pretty intentional. I hardly feel sorry for Lucic however since he plays the same dirty type of game an the slash was probably payback. Good thing they didn’t drop the gloves though that would be bad.

Lucic gets one game for punching a players head.. Weber gets zero for smashing Zetterberg’s head into the glass repeatedly. Sounds about right.
