Milan Lucic adds to Bruins lead in second period

Posted By DJ Bean On January 26, 2011 @ 8:37 pm In General | No Comments

Milan Lucic is a 20-goal-scorer for the first time, and after two periods the Bruins lead the Panthers, 2-0.

David Krejci, who had an injury scare on the first period after crashing into the boards, made the second period memorable for a more positive reason. The pivot won a face-off clean in the Panthers zone and drew it back to Lucic, who scored on a snapshot at 1:52. Lucic’s career-high for goals in a season was 17, which he scored in 2008-09, a season in which he played 72 games.

There were no penalties in the period, and through two the only penalty came in the form of a first-period high-sticking call on Panthers forward Christopher Higgins.

The shutout remains intact for Tim Thomas, with the B’s outshooting the Panthers, 26-19.
