07:07 AM ET 04.26 | And, for Boston fans, it's not a moment too soon. There is no mystery to what Milan Lucic is, or does, what it takes him to be successful. When he's on, he is the self-made hurricane, a 6-foot-4-inch, 220-pound swirl of British Columbian power and might capable of pounding opponents through the wall and forcing pucks to the net. The mystery, for most of the abbreviated 2013 season, has been what happened to that Milan Lucic? Thursday night, for reasons perhaps he doesn't fully comprehend, that Lucic was back on the job at the Garden. ... [Not] surprisingly, all of it factored into the sumptuous porridge of a 2-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He was much better last night for sure. A little more snarl out of the whole team would be good.

The problem I see with this team is that they handle the puck like it's a hot potato. Jagr seems to be the only one who shows any puck control at all. When was the last time anyone has seen a Bruin go end to end with the puck?

Thought the same thing. That's some purdy writing up there at the Globe.

Mila Lucy's back? About time she showed up. I was beginning to think she was a Sedin triplet somehow separated at birth.

The same year the space shuttle Columbia was delivered to NASA, 1979.

He's part of that British Columbian cartel.
