Milan Lucic thrown out of Battle of Alberta for hit on goaltender Mike Smith that sparks line brawl
The Battle of Alberta is no stranger to some rough stuff and that was on display in Sunday night’s Game Three. The Edmonton Oilers took down the Calgary Flames 4-1 to give them a 2-1 series lead but that end result was a bit overshadowed by a play that occurred with more than half of the third period left to play.
The Flames Milan Lucic bowled over Oilers goaltender Mike Smith behind the Edmonton net with the score 4-0 in favor of the Oilers. The most obvious of all melees ensued and when the dust settled Lucic was handed a five-minute major for charging and thrown out of the game.
