08:36 AM ET 04.19 | If Milan Lucic is wondering about his game, he may have lots of time to think about it Friday. He's scored 4 goals in his last 34 games, and he's rarely shown the kind of raging fire and physical intimidation that is normally a fearsome factor in his game. With that in mind, Claude Julien dropped him to a fifth line role on Thursday's practice skating on the "scratch line" with Jay Pandolfo and Kaspars Daugavins. ... [Lucic] now appears headed toward a scratch for Friday night's big game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. If that does happen -- and it would be the first healthy scratch for Lucic since his rookie season if memory serves correctly -- the left winger wouldn't be blaming the coaching staff for doing it.

Boston needs him to be at his best for the playoffs or it's going to be a tough go for them.

Maybe Clod could inspire him with some 'Miller' tackling dummies.

Last time I heard "thud" and "doghouse" in the same sentence, Mike Vick went to jail.

Well deserved too. He's been playing like Lucy van Pelt lately.

Put a flea collar on him before he comes out.
