Video: Lucic sucker punches Connauton in the head
Things got heated between the Arizona Coyotes and L.A. Kings on Saturday, with Milan Lucic and Kevin Connauton in the middle of it.
Connauton was given a slashing minor for quite a hack to the hands of Lucic, who responded by skating back at Connauton, giving him a slash and then punching the Coyotes defenseman in the head during the third period and Arizona ahead by a goal.
Lucic was furious and had to be held back by a linesman as he was escorted to the tunnel.
Kings will stay on the power play. Lucic, roughing, game misconduct. Connauton, slashing.— LA Kings Insider (@lakingsinsider) January 24, 2016
