Milan Lucic Hit: Bruins Forward Avoids Suspension For Ryan Miller Incident

Milan Lucic will not be suspended for his hit on Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller in Saturday's game. Brendan Shanahan, NHL vice president of player safety and hockey operations, reviewed the incident and talked to the Boston Bruins forward and decided that the minor penalty that was called on the ice was sufficient, according to a story on NHL.com.

"I had the hearing because I did make an initial assessment of the play as I do with all plays, but I did have some questions for Milan and I wanted to hear directly from him," Shanahan told NHL.com. "They were regarding his intent; at what point did he know there was going to be a collision; and whether or not he felt he had the time to avoid the collision. I was satisfied with his answers."

While Lucic will be permitted to play the Bruins' next game, the prognosis is not so good for Miller. Although he stayed in the game immediately after the hit, he was pulled in the third period and the team now says he has a concussion.
