Bruins defenseman Milan Lucic misses 6-foot-7 power play attempt against Kings

Boston Bruins defenseman Milano Lucic left the game Tuesday with a lower-body injury and was replaced by the injured Kevin Hayes.

Lucic has not played since Nov. 10 against the Calgary Flames.

He was a healthy scratch for Monday’s 4-1 win over the New York Rangers.

“We just couldn’t get it going, the whole game, for sure,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the game.

“Milano was a little bit tired, but he’s been a really good hockey player.

He has not scored in his past two games. “

It was just a little bump on his back and we felt like maybe we can use a little more patience.”

He has not scored in his past two games.

Bruins head coach Claude Octane called it a “tragic situation.”

The 23-year-old had 10 assists and 18 points in 16 games this season.

“Obviously you want to play with the guys you’re playing with, but you’re a player,” Julien added.

“If you’re out there on the ice, you’ve got to play.

It’s not going to be easy, but I think he’s done a really nice job. “

You know it’s a tough situation, a tough game.

It’s not going to be easy, but I think he’s done a really nice job.

It hurts us a little, but we have to keep trying to find a way to get him to play.”
