The on-ice war between the Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres reached new heights Wednesday night.
Not only did Sabres giant John Scott blindside Bruins winger Loui Eriksson with a hit to the head, one player’s wife got a shot in, too.
Noureen DeWulf, married to Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller, had one word for Bruins forward Milan Lucic after he took a puck to the face and left the ice.

If you’ll recall, Lucic is the man who sparked the grudge between both clubs after taking a run at Miller in November 2011. The puck-stopper suffered a concussion on the play and missed eight games.
Lucic was not suspended for the hit, which may explain DeWulf taking delight in his injury.
Unfortunately for her and the Sabres, Lucic returned to the ice after getting stitched up and promptly scored his second goal of the game on Miller and added an assist in a 5-2 win.
The big Bruins winger also fired a shot after the game.
“Obviously when you get hit in the face like that it’s never a good feeling, so it was good to come out and have a good first shift in the second period,” Lucic told reporters. “Actually, I almost hurt myself even more when I crashed in the boards after that, but it was nice to get one also when the crowd is cheering when you get in the face. It was nice to stick it to them that way.”
