Canucks face tough Bruins tonight

New, comments
And one of those Bruins is a Nucks fan still.

He still cheers for the Canucks and knows all the stats of all the games there. He’s a really big fan and it’s refreshing to see a young guy who easily could be so cocky and expect people to bow down to him be a really, really good kid.
That is what Bruins' defenceman Andrew Ference said of his teammate Milan Lucic.
-Lucic (pronounced loo-cheech)is a native of Vancouver. He played for the Vancouver Giants.
-He is currently second in scoring on the Bruins with 4 goals and 7 points in 9 games. 3 of those came in the form of a hat trick against Atlanta on October 25.
-6'4" 220 pounds. 20 years old. Drafted 50th overall by the Bruins in 2006.
-Lucic put Leafs' Van Ryn through the glass on October 23. Don't do that here, Milan.
-Watch Lucic, while playing for the Giants, nail a bunch of Tigers and then drop the gloves. The crowd chanted "Luuuuuuu". Good stuff.

A huge Lucic article, bio, etc and why the Canucks didn't draft him can be found at Crashing The Goalie.

The Bruins are right in the middle of a 3-game road trip. They squeezed by the Oilers 1-0 in OT last night (who says Roloson sucks, by the way?). They have won 2 in a row.

The Canucks put a half-assed road trip behind them and obliterated the Oilers 6-3 on Saturday night.

It's not very often that we get to see the Nucks play the Bruins, so this is going to be a treat to see them tangle in Vancouver.

Let's see how Lucic performs, as he will be fired up. That's not a good thing for Canucks fans.

Hopefully Kyle Wellwood keeps up his great play, and Krog hits the net.

It's time for the Sedins to break out of their mini funk.

The Canucks are going to have to shoot high and often on B's goalie Tim Thomas (if he indeed plays). Thomas is one of my faves. He never quits on a play.

Are we in for a goaltending battle from hell? Or a goal fest? It's so hard to tell with this Canucks team.

**UPDATE**

I'd like to give a big shout out to the Bruins bloggers / site owners out there who I have made acquaintance with:
