Report: Lucic to have disciplinary hearing with NHL

According to a report on TSN [1], B’s winger Milan Lucic [2] will have a hearing with NHL [3] disciplinarian Colin Campbell [4] on Sunday after getting a match penalty in the third period of Saturday night’s Game 2. Lucic was given a minor penalty for cross-checking when he came up high to Maxim Lapierre’s head with his gloves and stick when Lapierre approached Lucic in front of the Montreal net. Following the game, the refs amended their call and slapped Lucic with a match penalty for the exchange.

 According to NHL [5] rules, a match penalty results in ejection from the game along with suspension pending a review by the NHL Commissioner’s office. That review appears to now be underway.
