Lucic: VAN fans harassed my grandparents
By: DJ Bean

Milan Lucic has been the man of the hour throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs, as he hails from Vancouver and plays for the Bruins. He had plenty of family in attendance for the first two games of the series at Rogers Arena, but when asked Tuesday to address the rowdiness of Boston fans, noted that his family had a tough time in Vancouver.

A Vancouver reporter asked Lucic about the way Boston fans treat out-of-towners, saying that Vancouver natives had phoned his station saying they were verbally abused, among other things, by Bostonians after Game 3.

"It's funny they say that," a suddenly fired-up Lucic began, "because I remember after Game 1, people in Vancouver throwing popcorn and peanuts at my grandparents. That's almost as low as it gets as that goes. They're my grandparents. They're in their 60s. If there is anyone you should show respect to, it's them. 

"Also, my uncle and his uncle, [fans] were pouring beers...

Murphy: Talking to teams about finger 'crap'
By: DJ Bean

NHL vice president of hockey operations Mike Murphy met with the media Tuesday at Walter Brown Arena to discuss the league's disciplinary actions in the Stanley Cup finals. Murphy suspended Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome for four games due to a late hit that ended Nathan Horton's series, something he viewed as a bad situation for the game given that the finals lost two players. 

While Murphy's decision on Rome has been well-received by people throughout the game, the league has been under heat since electing to not suspend Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows for biting Patrice Bergeron in Game 1. Since then, Burrows factored into all three Canucks' goals in a Vancouver win in Game 2, while players from both teams have waved their fingers at one another and stuck their fingers in one another's mouths, mocking the play on which Bergeron cut his finger and had to receive a tetanus shot.

Murphy said Tuesday that his intention is for such actions, for...

Allen exercises option to stay with Celtics

The first order of player business for the 2011-12 season is complete as the Celtics announced via their Twitter feed that Ray Allen has exercised his option for next season. After the Celtics were eliminated by Miami, Allen said that he intended to stay with the team. Allen played in 80 games last season and returned to the All-Star game after averaging 16.5 points while shooting a career-high 44 percent from 3-point range.

With Allen on board the Celtics have six players under contract for next season: Rajon Rondo, Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Jermaine O'Neal and Avery Bradley.

Lucic: I'm sure Savard didn't like hit
By: DJ Bean

 

Perhaps no player on the Bruins is more directly impacted by Nathan Horton's absence than Milan Lucic. The two first-line wingers formed a chemistry on the ice and were seemingly inseparable off it. Speaking at Walter Brown Arena Tuesday, Lucic spoke of what the team must now do without Horton in the Stanley Cup finals.

"It's unfortunate," Lucic said. "We have to deal with it, and we have to find a way to rally around it. I think everyone as a group of 12 up front, as forwards, everyone needs to step up and do a little bit more to get results." 

Prior to the season, many in Boston dreamed of a line in which Marc Savard would center Lucic and Horton. Savard was never right after his concussion on a blindside hit from Matt Cooke last season, and his attempt at a comeback this season ended on a routine hit from former teammate Matt Hunwick. Now, the Bruins are without two thirds of the line people had hoped for...

NHL suspends Rome four games

The NHL has suspended Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome four games for his blindside hit to the head of Nathan Horton in the first period of Monday's Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals. 

Horton was motionless on the ice for several minutes following the hit, before being carried off on a stretcher and taken to Mass General Hospital. The Bruins announced Tuesday morning that Horton will not play in the remainder of the series due to a severe concussion, and this four-game suspension means that Rome will also miss the rest of the Cup finals.
