VIDEO: Bruins' Lucic scores on a sweet give-and-go with Iginla

Apr 20, 5:29 PM

Just five minutes after the Detroit Red Wings cut their deficit in half in the second period, Milan Lucic restored the Boston Bruins' two-goal lead with a beautifully set-up goal.

The Red Wings were completely caught off guard when Lucic crossed the blueline and executed a perfect give-and-go with Jarome Iginla.

As the Red Wings looked bewildered by the drop-off pass to Iginla, Lucic found himself wide open in front of the goal, where he made no mistake as he smashed the puck past a sprawling Jimmy Howard to make it a 3-1 game in the second period.


Howard got a good chunk of the Boston forward's shot with his stick, but the puck trickled into the net. It was Lucic's first goal of the playoffs.

It was an important goal, as it appeared the Red Wings had finally found some momentum after Luke Glendening's fluky goal found its way past Tuukka Rask.

The Bruins went on to capture a 4-1 victory in Game 2 and evened the series.
