This should quiet the Lucic bashers......
Fights the Sabres enforcer
Fights someone his own size
Lets McCormick get back up or helps him back up without pummeling him
Gives him a free pass and did not smoke him when he was down
Respected that McCormick did want any part of the fight or him
.....like him or hate him, Lucic is a complete player. Lucic, Chris Stewart, Ryane Clowe's of the league keep it exciting with hitting, goal scoring and good fights
Lucic seemed to pick his spot with a very tired McCormick and probably should have received an instigator but Boston appears to be exempt from that penalty. Lucic's size and strength prevailed over a game McCormick who was lucky to come out of it unscathed. Not sure why Horton didn't get a penalty for starting everything.
McCormick was at the end of a very long shift, Lucic knew it when he began but credit to Lucic showing class by not pummeling when he had him in a very bad spot at the end. Credit to McC for sparking his team to victory even though he lost this fight.
I love the way Horton is playing. Having Lucic ride shotgun would help anyone's confidence, good to know someone has your back. Lucic shows his strength here...and he doesn't even have his man-strength yet.
Two best hits in this sequence were McCormick steamrolling Boychuk and Butler tossing Horton. Horton went looking for it and found it. Too bad you got tossed for sticking ur nose in there and trying to pick it with Gerbe. As for the fight, gave it a draw and a 4. You B's fans are mostly all homers and as bad as Jackass Edwards. I like Lucic and Boychuk (wish the Avs still had him) but come on. Not many punches landed period and Cody never did have the best balance and at the end of a long shift, not much here. No question Looch ragdolled him but that does not mean he landed much..
