VIDEO: Bruins' Milan Lucic Hits Habs' Jaroslav Spacek, Gets Ejected In Game 6

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic was ejected in the second period of the Bruins' 2-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens in Game 6 on Tuesday night following his hit on Montreal defenseman Jaroslav Spacek. Lucic received a five-minute major penalty for boarding (served by Shawn Thornton) and was later given a 10-minute game misconduct. Here's a look at his hit on Spacek.

Bruins fan or not, it was a nasty hit by one of the Bruins' enforcers. But was it a dirty hit? The debate begins, and that will ultimately be decided by the NHL brass, as they will decide whether or not to suspend Lucic for Game 7 on Wednesday night.

Lucic hasn't been a major factor in the Bruins' first round series against the Canadiens, registering just one point (an assist in Game 5) so far in the series. Lucic scored 30 goals and had 32 assists in the regular season.
