So amidst talk of being "fat" and "out of shape" and "not game ready", Lucic has put together a very impressive start to the season. 2 goals and an assist, a couple fights, and seems to be much more physical again.
He caused havoc in front of the net on Horton's game winner after making a nice play behind the net to keep the play going earlier in the shift and put in an impressive screen on Chara's goal last night. He seems from my unprofessional eye to be camping in front of the net more this year to pretty good success. And with Horton back healthy that line has been humming nicely. That warrants a thread in my book. Let's hope he can stay healthy and keep this up. 'Cause everyone loves doughnuts.
