Lucic Scores Late, But Bruins' Comeback Bid Falls Short - Boston Bruins - Blog

BOSTON, MA - The Bruins had all watched the comebacks from their Boston sports counterparts the Patriots and Red Sox on Sunday.

Boston set themselves for their own rally, falling down 3-1 in the second period. Lucic, in Game 7 against Toronto fashion, made a late bid, powering in the 100th goal of his NHL career to bring the B’s within one with 1:20 to go in regulation.

But the bid fell short, as the Black & Gold fell to the Wings, 3-2.

"I’m not discouraged by any means. Disappointed today and disappointed when you lose the close games - but not discouraged."

- Jarome Iginla

Milan Lucic is still riled up from the Boston sports day we all had Sunday. One of the most (if not most) knowledgeable sports fans on the team, Looch follows the other Boston teams closely, and was impressed with the Patriots and Red Sox comeback wins that sent the city abuzz.During his pregame interview before facing the Detroit Red Wings on Monday, Lucic offered his take.
"A lot of frustration as a fan," he smiled, of watching the games. "That obviously ended up with some great comebacks and some great finishes.""Obviously being able to be a part of that last year with the game 7 against Toronto, and seeing something like that yesterday, especially in that 8th inning there, when Big Papi hit the grand slam, I think it was like the first time that I ever kind of jumped out of my couch and cheered for something in a long, long time. It was a great day of New England sports watching.""I think there’s that special buzz right now in the city with the sports and I know it’s probably a good way to set the stage going into this game, and I know the guys are all excited and talking about it going into the game here today and, obviously, we have a lot to live up to."

I didn’t even think about it until Looch looked at me and goes, ‘is that your first one?’

At the Core of Lucic's Toughness

BostonBruins.com - Milan Lucic is one tough Boston Bruin.

In fact, he was once voted by his peers in an NHLPA poll in 2012 as “the toughest player in the league.”

That “rough and tough” persona has been engrained in the now 6-foot-4, 235-pound power forward since he entered the league in 2007. It’s the reason his checks and hard hits excite the TD Garden crowd and cause fans to chant “Loooooooch” game after game.

Recently, I had the chance to visit Milan in Vancouver with our #BearTracks crew to bring you offseason updates. For me, the most interesting part of these summer trips is discovering connections between the person away from the rink and the Boston Bruin on the ice.

Vancouver About Much More than the Cup for Milan

VANCOUVER, BC - On June 15, 2011, Milan Lucic hoisted Lord Stanley on the ice in Rogers Arena in downtown Vancouver.

This city is very special to him. But it’s not just because of that day, and the memories the Bruin will carry with him for the rest of his life.

This is his hometown, where he grew up a short drive from downtown, where he began his junior career with the Vancouver Giants, and where he now spends summers with his family.

"I’m fortunate to be able to come back out here to where it’s such a beautiful spot," Lucic said, as he took the #BearTracks crew into his home for a few days.

"It’s always nice to get to come home and see your family, get back to your roots and see all of your friends that you grew up with."

No Pain, No Gain for Milan

VANCOUVER, BC - So, you know how great you always feel after a run? Or a hard weight-lifting workout? Or even the fact that you decided to take the stairs instead of the elevator?

Yeah, Milan Lucic put us all to shame this morning in Vancouver, as we kicked off Day 2 of #BearTracks with his morning workout at Pro 4 Sports to get a glimpse of his offseason training.

After his warm-up routine (that could serve as a whole workout for most people, quite frankly) full of hurdles and quick footwork and clapping push-ups, the main bulk of the workout began. And ‘Looch’ ended up covered in sweat as a result.

With other hockey players in his training facility, the 6-foot-4, 235-pound power forward, apologized at one point to a few athletes who were about to hit the machine right after him. There was a stream of sweat covering the bench and a little pool underneath. Further evidence of the effort put into the morning, if we even needed it.

"It was a tough one," smiled Lucic, post-workout. "Today was combining endurance with strength."
