Milan Lucic did not participate in the morning skate. Lucic was at TD Garden while his teammates were on the ice. While leaving the dressing room en route to the team’s pregame meal, Lucic walked with a noticeable limp. Lucic is expected to play tonight.
“No issues there at all,” Claude Julien said of Lucic.
During power-play drills yesterday, Tyler Seguin blasted Lucic with a shot off the right foot. Lucic stayed on the ice for the full practice.
* Mark Recchi exercised his usual option of skipping the skate. Recchi went through an off-ice workout instead.
