Don’t call it a comeback, call it a cup-check.
Boston Bruins’ forward Milan Lucic decided it was a good idea to swing his stick at Detroit Red Wings’ forward Danny DeKeyser’s groin on Friday night.
I mean, he really didn’t hold anything back on this one.
I’m sure this is not what Claude Julien wanted to see in Game 1 of the tightly contested series.
Lucic got away with the spear, with no penalty called on the play.
Now we all anxiously wait to see how many games Lucic will get for this grimy move.
UPDATE: Corey Perry decided to get in on the action as well, spearing his Team Canada Olympic team linemate Jamie Benn in the groin.
Between the two groin spearing incidents, and Joel Quenneville’s odd groin grab that cost him $25,000, it seems like the 2014 NHL playoffs have quite the theme going for them.
The 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs, it’s nuts.
