Milan Lucic Reflects on His Longing for Boston and the Anticipation of Opening Night Against the Blackhawks

In a recent interview, John Scott delved into Milan Lucic's feelings about his return to Boston and the upcoming opening night game against the Chicago Blackhawks, a team that had expressed great interest in signing the seasoned winger.

Lucic expressed his profound connection to the city, confessing that he hadn't fully realized how deeply he had embraced the Bostonian identity until he left. The prospect of returning to the ice on opening night stirred intense excitement within him, making it one of the most exhilarating games he anticipated in his career.

Scott was curious as to what made this game so exceptional for Lucic, given his involvement in numerous significant matches over the years. Lucic swiftly replied, citing the essence of Boston itself—the passionate fans, the iconic Garden, the pride of representing an original six team, and the privilege of wearing the Bruins jersey once again.

Scott playfully asked Lucic if he would hit Connor Bedard, a highly regarded player, in a hypothetical scenario. Lucic's response was definitive and in line with his physical playing style, stating that he would absolutely run him over.

Unsurprisingly, Lucic's return to the Bruins has sparked intrigue among fans and the media alike. While there is a sense of nostalgia surrounding his comeback, Lucic recognizes that his role this time may differ. Nonetheless, he remains hopeful that his return to Boston will reignite a sense of rejuvenation, allowing him to recapture his former self.
