Milan Lucic will be in the lineup tonight when the Bruins host the New Jersey Devils at the Garden looking for their sixth consecutive win.

That tidbit is not all that surprising but still newsworthy, considering Lucic escaped suspension in his hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan, who held the conference call with the Bruins winger to discuss his hit on Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller.

"I had the hearing because I did make an initial assessment of the play as I do with all plays, but I did have some questions for Milan and I wanted to hear directly from him," Shanahan told NHL.com. "They were regarding his intent: At what point did he know there was going to be a collision, and whether or not he felt he had the time to avoid the collision. I was satisfied with his answers."
