Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic is unrepentant about apparently telling Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise “I’m going to f------ kill you next year” during their post-series handshake earlier this week.

Lucic reportedly said the same thing to Canadiens defenceman Alexei Emelin after Montreal eliminated the Bruins.

“I’m not sorry that I did it,” Lucic told ESPN. “I’m a guy that plays on emotion, and this is a game of emotions. Sometimes you make decisions out of emotions that might not be the best ones.

“It’s unfortunate, especially because a lot of what’s said on the ice stays on the ice. Unfortunately, that code is broken and it’s unfortunate it blows up to what it is now. I’m not the first guy to do it, I’m not the last guy to do it.”

Lucic did say he probably wouldn’t do it again, however he stopped short of saying what he did was wrong.

“Again, I live by ‘what is said on the ice stays on the ice,’” he said. “I can’t take back what I said, so I’m not apologizing for what was said in the handshake. It’s unfortunate that what was said on the ice gets leaked out, gets blown out of proportion.

“I deal with my problems myself and that’s the way I go about my business. I don’t think much of the guys that feel the need to go and do something like that.”
