Milan Lucic sure has taken on the role of being the Flames new enforcer.
Last night, the winger entered his second fight of the year.
And this time, Kurtis MacDermid was the one getting to know the temper of Lucic.
Milan Lucic got traded to the Flames while James Neal went to Edmonton this past summer.
Milan Lucic fight Kurtis MacDermid
Last night, Neal scored four goals, and it was only natural to think that Lucic would want to get on the board as well.
The winger hasn’t bagged one single point this season, and last night, while being down 3-0 to the Los Angeles Kings, Lucic was fed up. If he couldn’t score points, at least he could get into some violence.
In the middle of the second period, Lucic dropped his gloves against Kings’ forward Kurtis MacDermid.
MacDermid already had his fair share of fights in the NHL, but Lucic was probably one of his toughest opponents thus far.
With a couple of fists, Lucic got the crowd fired up and one could argue that the Flames joined in.
Three straight goals tied the game at 3-3. However, Drew Doughty scored the game winning goal for the Kings in overtime, giving the team its first win of the season.
