Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic came forward stating that he was not sorry for the occurrence between himself and Canadiens’ Dale Weise during the final handshake of the series.
Although upset that the situation has escalated, Lucic feels that what’s said on the ice should stay on the ice. Especially for a playoff game where emotions run wild. What would a hockey game be without players chirping at each other?
“Unfortunately, that code is broken and it’s unfortunate it blows up to what it is now. I’m not the first guy to do it, I’m not the last guy to do it. I’m not sorry that I did it. I’m a guy that plays on emotion, and this is a game of emotions. Sometimes you make decisions out of emotions that might not be the best ones.
The code was definitely broken after Weise complained that disrespectful statements were being directed at him.
“I can’t take back what I said, so I’m not apologizing for what was said in the handshake. It’s unfortunate that what was said on the ice gets leaked out, gets blown out of proportion. I deal with my problems myself and that’s the way I go about my business. I don’t think much of the guys that feel the need to go and do something like that.”
Leave what is said on the ice and a lot of unnecessary drama would be laid to rest.
