Canadiens At Bruins, Game 7: Milan Lucic Avoids Suspension

According to Rogers Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos, there will be no suspension for Milan Lucic, meaning he will be available for the Boston Bruins when they host the Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series at the TD Garden Wednesday night (7 p.m. ET, Versus and NESN).

Lucic was facing possible discipline from the league because of his hit on the Canadiens' Jaroslav Spacek during Tuesday's Game 6, a hit that promptly earned Lucic an ejection at the time. 

The Bruins have already said they will not comment on the hit. 

Did the NHL make the right decision? Probably, says SB Nation's Travis Hughes, who outlines a perceived lack of intent on Lucic's part, a precedent for similar hits this postseason, injury and the on-ice penalty. And as of this posting, the readers seem to agree -- 72 percent of those who responded to the poll say the league made the right call by not suspending Milan Lucic for Game 7.
