article imageBruins' Milan Lucic allegedly threatens Weise after loss

By Marcus Hondro     May 15, 2014 in Sports
The Montreal Canadiens' game 7 win over arch-rival Boston Bruins is the biggest NHL story of last night, but Bruin winger Milan Lucic also hit the news. In the hand-shake line-up after it was over, Lucic, allegedly, threatened Dale Weise.
The story has it that the bruising Bruin told Weise, who scored the game's first goal at 2:18 of the first, he was going to "kill him" next year. There was, it seems, an expletive in there so it was actually this: "I'm going to fucking kill you next year." The big bad Bruin also said something nasty to defenceman Alexei Emelin.
Weise, who was dealt to the Canadiens from the Vancouver Canucks during the season and has played a key role in these playoffs for Montreal, was asked about it by media after the game and while he confirmed the nastiness from Lucic, evident in the video of the handshakes line-up, he wasn't overly upset about it.
"Milan Lucic had a few things to say to a couple of guys," Weise said. "You look at guys like Shawn Thornton who has been around this league and plays hard and he plays that role and he had good things to say to everybody. He won with class and Milan Lucic just couldn't do that."
He added that he wouldn't get specific about what Lucic said but that it was "just poor, it's a poor way to lose." For his part, Lucic told media that what he said was said on the ice and would stay there. He then said that if Weise "...wants to be a baby about it...he can make it public."
The antipathy may have started earlier in the series when Lucic scored a big goal in a game the Bruins won and thumped his chest in celebration, a move Weise and Montreal didn't like. The next game Weise scored a big goal when his team won and he copied Lucic's chest thumping celebration. The two also had several run-ins on the ice.
And likely will next year.
