Royal beating: Lucic, Kings crush Bruins 9-2
The Boston Bruins welcomed Milan Lucic back on Tuesday. Maybe they shouldn’t have extended such a warm welcome to the Los Angeles Kings overall, however.
You won’t see many games as lopsided as this one, at least in 2015-16, as the Kings walloped the Bruins by a humbling score of 9-2.
Lucic wasn’t just there, either, as he scored a goal and an assist in his quite triumphant return to Boston.
Tuukka Rask had a short night in Boston’s net, yet it wasn’t as if Jonas Gustavsson enjoyed his time. It was a pretty sound beating by all accounts.
The 57 shots the Bruins gave up is the most they've allowed since March of 1965.— Amalie Benjamin (@AmalieBenjamin) February 10, 2016
9-2 Kings. Last of B's fans now streaming out of the building or throwing catcalls on the ice. Most embarrassing home loss in recent memory— Joe Haggerty (@HackswithHaggs) February 10, 2016
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
