THE SKINNY: Big winger has a lot of GMs asking their scouts "How did you miss this guy?" He went 50th overall in the 2006 draft ... Of the '06 draft class, only Jordan Staal, Phil Kessel, Peter Mueller and James Sheppard have played more games than Lucic in the NHL so far ... He's a native of Vancouver and played his junior hockey with the Vancouver Giants of the WHL.

NOTEWORTHY

The Senators are looking for their first win against the Bruins this season. They are 0-4-1 against the Eastern Conference-leading B's. Apart from their last meeting, which the Bruins won 2-1 in Boston April 2, the games have been pretty high-scoring with the Bruins potting 21 goals to the Senators' 13 ... The Senators are just 2-for-17 on the power play against Boston this season and are 0-for-9 in their last two meetings ... The Bruins are 4-for-14 with the man advantage against the Senators this season, 4-for-6 in the last two games ... After Manny Fernandez started the first two games against Ottawa this season, Tim Thomas has played the last two.
