Lucic made the gesture towards fans as he made his way to the penalty box for a boarding call with just over a minute left to go in the game, with Boston down by just a goal. As he left the box following Montreal’s empty net goal to make it 6-4 Canadiens, Lucic was tossed from the game for confronting an official.
