Milan Lucic fined $5K by NHL for obscene gesture in Montreal (Puck Daddy)

Milan Lucic, we get it. You’re in the penalty box, you’re facing the crowd, your gloves are low enough where perhaps it’ll go unnoticed that you’re pantomiming masturbation to the Montreal Canadiens fans.  Alas, it did not, and Milan Lucic was fined on Friday by the National Hockey League for that lewd gesture: Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic has been fined $5,000 for an obscene gesture made during Game No. 53 in Montreal on Thursday, Oct. 16, the National Hockey League’s Hockey Operations Department announced today. Lucic expressed his self-satisfaction late in the third period of the Bruins’ 6-4 loss at the Canadiens on Thursday night. He was penalized for boarding after hitting Montreal defenseman Alexei Emelin after he had released the puck – an opponent, incidentally, that Lucic threatened to “kill” during their post-series handshake in the 2014 Eastern Conference Playoffs. Lucic went to the penalty box, faced the fans, had a stroke and then raised his hands in the air to mimic hoisting the Stanley Cup. Which, as we said at the time, was really the obscene gesture considering Lucic (1 Stanley Cup) has some catching up to do with the Canadiens (24 Stanley Cups). It was a scant two years ago that another Bruin, current Edmonton Oiler Andrew Ference, was fined $2,500 for an obscene gesture in Montreal, in which he gave Canadiens fans the finger located between his index and his ring. But the Lucic punishment still pales in comparison to the granddaddy of all sexual gesture punishments: James Wisniewski in 2010, who was actually suspended two games for a graphic sexual gesture made with this mouth towards Sean Avery of the New York Rangers. Under the CBA at the time, the most he could have been fined was $2,500. The suspension cost him over $79,000. So consider yourself lucky, Milan Lucic, for only having gotten lucky with yourself.  More NHL coverage on Yahoo Canada Sports:

Tuukka Rask targeted by idiot’s laser pointer in Montreal (Video) (Puck Daddy)

In the second period of the Boston Bruins’ 6-4 loss at the Montreal Canadiens , a green dot danced around the crease of goalie Tuukka Rask . Somewhere inside Bell Centre sat an idiot. And they had a laser pointer. We’ve seen this before, of course. Miikka Kiprusoff had a laser hit his mask several times at the Vancouver Canucks back in 2010. Ditto Jose Theodore, who had it happen that year in a game at the New York Rangers. In this case, Rask said the laser didn’t affect him. Rask on laser: “At me? No. You know, I saw it in the second but it was in the offensive zone. Good thing I didn’t go blind or anything.” — Joe McDonald (@ESPNJoeyMac) October 17, 2014 As we’ve said in the past: Laser pointers are explicitly banned from arenas, but there’s only so much that ushers and other personnel can do. It’s on us, as fans, to police our own. And shining a laser point on the ice, no matter how much you loathe the opponent, is something narc-worthy.   More NHL coverage on Yahoo Canada Sports:

NHL Three Stars: Quick blanks Blues; Seguin’s last-minute winner (Puck Daddy)

No. 1 Star: Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings   Quick had a Total Shutout of the St. Louis Blues with 43 saves and three more in the shootout, including one against TJ Oshie. He tied Rogie Vachon for the most shutouts in franchise history. Jeff Carter had the lone goal of the shootout. No. 2 Star: Tyler Seguin, Dallas Stars Seguin’s power-play goal with 2.9 seconds left in regulation, his fourth of the season, gave the Dallas Stars a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins . Sidney Crosby, who scored his fourth earlier in the game, was in the box for tripping Jamie Benn.   No. 3 Star: Brendan Gallagher, Montreal Canadiens       Gallagher had two goals and an assist in the Montreal Canadiens’ 6-4 win over the Boston Bruins . That included a key third period tally to give Montreal a 2-goal lead. P.A. Parenteau also had two goals. Honorable Mention: Kyle Okposo had a goal and an assist while Jaroslav Halak made 20 saves and won a five-round shootout. The New York Islanders outlasted the San Jose Sharks, 4-3 , despite a goal and an assist from Brent Burns. … The Washington Capitals had six different goal scorers, including Alex Ovechkin’s fifth, as they defeated the New Jersey Devils, 6-2 . Braden Holtby made 26 saves. … Rick Nash does it again, scoring the lone goal in the shootout as the New York Rangers defeated the Carolina Hurricanes, 2-1 . Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves. … Impressive rally from the Ottawa Senators, as third-period goals by Bobby Ryan, Clarke MacArthur and Chris Neil powered them to a 5-3 win over goalie Calvin Pickard and the Colorado Avalanche . Did You Know? The Islanders are 4-0-0 for the first time in 13 years, thanks in part to this wicked shootout move from John Tavares. Dishonorable Mention: Zdeno Chara was a minus-3. … Cory Schneider was lit up for five goals on 26 shots before he was pulled. … Jamie McGinn was a minus-3. … Mikhail Grabovski suffered an upper body injury. … Milan Lucic is likely getting a fine for these fan taunts.

Milan Lucic taunts Montreal fans, bit of a jerk (Video) (Puck Daddy)

Please recall that Alexei Emelin of the Montreal Canadiens was one of the players Milan Lucic threatened during the post-Game 7 handshake line last playoffs. If you’re Lucic, playing against the Canadiens for the first time this season, you might want to follow through on your threat. You may want to hit Emelin as hard as you can, maybe even cross the line of legality when you do so. Now, when would be a good time to unleash this fury? If you guessed “any time other than with 1:20 left in a game in which your team trails by a goal,” well, you’d be right. You also wouldn’t be Milan Lucic. Lucic followed through on a hit after Emelin had released the puck and turned his back to Lucic, earning the Bruins forward a boarding penalty. P.A. Parenteau scored an empty net power-play goal to seal the 6-4 win for the Habs. Being a creature of petulance, Lucic took his moment in the penalty box to taunt the Montreal fans jeering him. Here, watch this GIF and see if you can pick out the moment when he feigns self-gratification to the fans:
