So since Milan Lucic joined Twitter, there have been some hijinks, which he gladly recapped in his interview on Toucher and Rich this morning. Most notably and unsurprisingly?
Sabres fans are still kvetching about his hit on their delicate flower of a goalie, Ryan Miller.
Raise your hand if you're shocked.
