Milan Lucic and Mike Komisarek don't like each other.
That's really the only logical explanation for the rivalry those two players have developed over the years.
The feud dates back to Komisarek's days with the Canadiens, when the two teams rumbled extensively seemingly every time they faced each other. But now, even with Komisarek in the midst of his third season with the Maple Leafs, the hatred between him and Lucic appears to be as strong as ever.
The two went to blows during Monday's contest, which proved to be just as one-sided as their previous altercations. Lucic repeatedly hammered Komisarek, sending the TD Garden crowd into a frenzy.
