Lucic helps Kings embarrass Bruins in 9-2 slaughter

Boston Bruins tribute to Milan Lucic, on February 9, 2016. Watch the game recap video here.
Hey look, the Bruins didn't show up for another game. Or wait, did they show up and just get demolished by a much better team that shows them that they are a much inferior team to the good teams in the NHL this season.

What an embarrassment last night was, I feel bad for those that paid money to go see that game. The word "embarrassment" has come up too much this season after Bruins game, referring to the Bruins play.

Torey Krug (-4), Ryan Spooner (-3) and Jimmy Hayes (-3) led the way in this one. Best part of the game? No doubt it was the Boston Bruins tribute video to Milan Lucic. Watch the video above to see the tribute.
