Milan Lucic Thinks Bruins’ Determination Is Finally Paying Off

Milan Lucic Thinks Bruins' Determination Is Finally Paying Off The Bruins’ big 3-1 home win over Buffalo on Thursday night was good for more than improving Boston’s chances of clinching a spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs; it boosted team morale, too.

“It was a huge win for us,” Bruins bruiser Milan Lucic told NESN’s Naoko Funayama on Friday’s edition of SportsDesk. “It was a huge two points and it was a tough 60-minute battle. Obviously, Buffalo played well and it didn’t give us much. … We were determined to win, and I think that’s why we came out on top.”

Still, even if the Bruins’ competition loses to close out the season, Boston doesn’t plan on mailing it in.

“Regardless of what happens [on Friday night], we want to do whatever we can to finish as high as we can in the standings,” Lucic said. “We have to go into these last few games with the mindset to come out with four points.”
