Lucic anticipates retaliation from Sabres on Wed.

The Sabres and Bruins will clash again on Wednesday in Buffalo, and the referees will be on high alert. Well, that's the edict that was handed down by Brendan Shanahan to the Northeast Division foes.

Also on his toes will be Milan Lucic, the Bruins forward who hit -- or "collided" with, depending on your vantage point -- Sabres goalie Ryan Miller outside of the crease earlier this month, leaving Miller out with a concussion. The Bruins forward, who wasn't attacked during the Bruins' 6-2 win that night, is expecting to be on Wednesday.

Here is what Lucic told Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe on Tuesday when asked if expects for somebody to take a shot at him:

"Yes ... I'm not going to lie ... yes."

Considering the Sabres did nothing and one of them, Paul Gaustad, was upset at both the team's and his own lack of response, it's not like Lucic is going out on a limb here. There is a lot of pressure from the fans in Buffalo, and likely within the team, to make up for their lack of a response.

Just a note to any would-be agitators, Lucic can fight and has been able to for many years.

I can’t believe that Gaustad. What a piece of [feces]… I mean, he’s got 50 pounds on Marchand and he runs him like that? It’s unbelievable!

Well did not get to see the game since it is not on here and I had to work anyway. I did see the replay the fights between Lucic and Gaustad and Chara and Ryger. I think both accomplished their goals. They showed they would not just bow down to the Bruins and the funny thing is that Ryger fared much better vs Chara with such a huge size advantage than Goos did against Lucic. I see lizardmoron did not respond to my posts and I assume he just does not want to talk hockey,just hurl insults. Sort of like this rockee fool. Chara is a Masshole? Really? Is Masshole the best you can come up with? Where to start on that? Hmmm,ok. Well he is not from massachusetts which is part of being a Masshole. Hell he is European which is not even North American my silly friend. Next, it is actuallly a compliment to be called a Masshole, I should know. I am a Masshole born and bred. Lived there for 35 of my 40 years. In another post you imply that people from Boston cannot speak proper english and are uneducated. That is hilarious. You do realize that Boston and all of Massachusetts has some of the best educational systems and institutions in the world? Oh well, people like liz and rockee just prove the age old addage-you cant fix stupid.

Well I am having trouble reading what you wrote. It is missing capital letters and punctuation.
