Milan Lucic Aiding Kings In Overly Physical Western Conference (Video)

The Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles Kings are right back in the Stanley Cup playoff hunt. Milan Lucic is a big reason why.

The Kings acquired Lucic from the Boston Bruins last summer after finishing their championship defense by missing the playoffs. In the big and bruising Western Conference, the 6-foot-3 power forward aids the physical nature of play that has slowly slipped out of the East.

Lucic, who had 12 goals and 18 assists entering Tuesday, sat down with NESN’s Jack Edwards to reflect on the differences between the two conferences in advance of his first game back at TD Garden since being traded.
