Milan Lucic Says Hit on Zac Rinaldo Was On Shoulder, Happy Nobody Was Hurt

Milan Lucic received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding Zac Rinaldo late in the second period on Saturday, and he could find himself in another meeting with Brendan Shanahan.

Lucic explained the hit after the game.

"I noticed he was in a bit of a vulnerable position," Lucic said following the Bruins' 6-0 victory. "I looked and watched the tape again in slo-mo and I looked at the point of contact and it was his shoudler more than anything. And you can see him turning … when he was going into the boards.

"I'm just glad no one got hurt on the play."

Watch the hit and Lucic's postgame comments in the video above.
