It will be interesting to see the reception Lucic will get in Vancouver, the site of the Bruins Stanley Cup-clinching Game 7 victory and terrible riots afterwards.
“I hope it’s not the same reaction we saw after Game 7, we don’t want that stuff going on again,” Lucic told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Gresh and Zolak on Wednesday. “I’m hoping for a positive reaction. I know it’s going to be a pretty good reception for myself. I’m just going to keep things low-key; just enjoy having the cup around my friends and family, take it to some local spots. It’s going to be a lot of fun, that’s for sure.”
The NHL Hall of Fame is running an ongoing dairy of the Cup’s travels throughout the summer.
98.5 The Sports Hub is the only place to hear every game of the Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins 2011-12 NHL season with Dave Goucher and Bob Beers.
