Lucic won't be suspended, there was no injury and it's the playoffs.
Didn't look like there was any feeling out period, they just went into full blown don't give an inch playoff hockey. Very intense game focused on limiting chances against.
Both goalies were fantastic.
Legwand-Glendening-Miller did a fantastic job. There were a lot of times they took a d-zone faceoff and the next draw was in the Bruins' end.
Kids looked like they've all been here before, between the Calder Cup last year and the tight end of the season this year, there wasn't much adjustment for them.
Plus he wasn't suspended for doing the same thing to Alexei Emelin about a month ago. The best revenge isn't a suspension anyways, it's continuing to get under his skin, taking him off his game, & taking the series.
As Richdg said we do have 1 more buyout we can use this summer. Maybe its Weiss? Also a lot of the reason Howard is struggling is the defense is terrible. I think if the wings can get a couple solid d guys in the offseason then we may see a better Howie next season.
And that 1 buy out, their 2nd compliance buy out, cannot be used on Weiss as he was signed after the new CBA went in effect. Tootoo will get the last compliance buy out imo. If the Wings move on Weiss, it will have to be a regular buy out i.e. some of his cap hit will remain after.
More like signed him to 7 years at a cap hit of $5.25m a year. In addition to tipping pucks off his crotch in front of the goalie, he'll also take over as their #1 ambassador of water bottle etiquette.
When Holland signs Nyquist to his new deserved contract, I am getting a Nyquist jersey. Him and Tatar are so exciting to watch. The Wings are lucky to have him. Basically playing the role of Z over the past month carrying the team.
Why wait? I just pulled the trigger on a Nyquist Winter Classic jersey this morning.
