Mike Komisarek Breaks His Stick on Milan Lucic's Face
During tonight's game between the Bruins and Canadiens, Mike Komisarek and Milan Lucic had a couple interesting encounters. The video above is of the fight between the pair towards the end of the second period. At that point, the Habs were trailing 4-1 and maybe Komisarek was just looking to get his team jump started. Lucic dropped him with one punch this time around. Later in the game, Komisarek decided to cross check Lucic in the face (video after the jump). These two guys are really very cordial.
There's are also a few other sides to this story. In Game Two of this series Lucic gave a cross-check to the face of Maxim Lapierre, earning himself a match penalty and a suspension for Game Three. Chances are, this could have been a little on-ice justice applied by Komisarek. Here, Komisarek went 'eye for an eye' with a stick-breaking cross-check to Lucic's face earning a game misconduct of his own. We'll have to wait and see if there will be any penalties handed down for Komisarek, but there likely will be something handed down.
These guys also have a bit of a history. Back in November the two got into a fight and Lucic could been seen playing to the crowd afterward. Komisarek also hurt his hand badly in that fight, causing him to miss 16 games. No matter the motivation for going after Lucic, Komisarek certainly had a lot of it.
