We almost feel like we’re watching some kind of bizarre social experiment in this series, as we observe Bruins forward Milan Lucic‘s temper simmer, simmer, and boil over more and more frequently as his line continues to be rather ineffective versus the Caps. These bursts of temper saw Lucic collecting 8 PIMs by the end of the night, though– puzzlingly- the refs seemed to think that it was always necessary to tack a Washington penalty on top, perhaps so Lucic wouldn’t get so lonely in the box. The refs have seen this behavior — he’s acting out for attention– and should know better.
Lucic got into a scuffle with Matt Hendricks late in the third period, and then Karl Alzner, when Alzner tried to intervene. There were words exchanged, and Alzner didn’t seem too impressed by them, to say the least.
Let’s just say, Alzer could be on our charades team anytime.
