Lucic faces suspension, B's call out Meyer
By: DJ Bean

Milan Lucic and Claude Julien were both upset over Thrashers defenseman Freddy Meyer's hit on the Bruins forward that led to the all-out brawl that took place with 4:06 remaining in the B's 4-1 victory at the Garden Thursday night.

 

"It was a high hit, for sure. I was bleeding from the lip. After a hit like that -- that was the second time he's hit me cheap," Lucic said. "That's the second time. You can't give a guy a free pass too many times."

 

Lucic was given a match penalty for attempt to injure when he punched a helmet-less Meyer in the temple, knocking him to the ground. He now faces a suspension, pending review. Claude Julien said the fight -- which also featured Nathan Horton, Marc Savard, and Andrew Ference -- could have been avoided were it not for the hit, which he deemed unequivocally cheap.

 

"Nobody saw that coming until that dirty hit....

There's your answer: Bruins pound Thrashers
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins spent the past two days dealing with backlash from both fans and the media over their recent struggles. They responded in a big way Thursday, playing one of their better games of the season in defeating the Thrashers, 4-1, at TD Garden. 

 

Though Patrice Bergeron got the B's on the board with a shorthanded goal in the first and Michael Ryder tallied what proved to be the deciding goal, Shawn Thornton was the offensive hero for the 17,565 to pack the Garden seats. The energy line winger had a big night, beating Thrashers goaltender Ondrej Pavelec for two goals and setting a new career high with seven. 

 

With 4:06 remaining in the game, an all-out brawl broke out, with Milan Lucic, Nathan Horton, Andrew Ference, and Marc Savard dropping the gloves for the B's.

 

Tim Thomas improved his record to 15-4-3 on the season. 

 

The Bruins will have two days off before...

Ainge on Big Show: 'I like this team better'

In his weekly interview with The Big Show, Celtics president Danny Ainge said he thinks this season's team is better than last year because of improved depth and healthy seasons from Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. "I think this just a better team," Ainge said. "I like this team much better. I like the depth better. I feel more more confident in this team and what we're capable of doing. Last year we came very close. We're playing now without Delonte [West] and Rajon [Rondo], which makes it very difficult, and we're still finding ways to win." 

 

Ainge attributed much of last year's problems to injuries that affected Pierce and Garnett. "I think last year's regular season, we didn't play with a lot of resolve but we also had more injuries to more key players," Ainge said. "Paul and KG weren't near the same and both of those guys are having great years."
