Milan Lucic doesn't want to talk to NHL director of player safety Brendan Shanahan again any time soon, but the Bruins power forward vowed not to change his game when he returns from a one-game suspension tonight against the Panthers.

"I can't change my game," said Lucic after yesterday's practice at Ristuccia Arena. "I play with a lot of emotion and I do everything I can to keep it safe and follow the guidelines of the new hitting protocol. Obviously, a big part of my game is being physical and creating emotion, and I can't lose that, that's for sure."

Lucic got tagged with the one-game sabbatical after being assessed a five-minute major for hitting Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo from behind, also getting the accompanying game misconduct last Saturday.
