Video: Milan Lucic’s brutal fight with Joel Rechlicz

That’s an impressive round of fisticuffs, no doubt, but you have to wonder how the Bruins feel about their 25-year-old power forward dropping the gloves in a heavyweight bought during a preseason game.

There’s no word on Lucic being banged up from the scuffle, yet it’s certainly a risk, especially against a seasoned pugilist.

Rechlicz, 26, engaged in a second period fight against Johnny Boychuk, too:
