Hits, Jets, and an awesome Maroon 5 reference… read on playa!– Buffalo Hills 14203
The drama continues in Buffalo after standout goaltender Ryan Miller was shelved with a concussion. Bruins forward Milan Lucic knocked the goalie to the ice after Miller left the net to play a puck. Disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan ruled not to suspend Lucic while calling Buffalo’s comments “irresponsible.” The goalie called Lucic’s play “gutless.” Can’t they all just meet at the Peach Pit and call it a day?

Kane called it “the most complete game we’ve played.” Captain Andrew Ladd and Mark Flood added the other two scores.
