    Morning roundup: Lucic still ticked, McQuaid not ready, Cuts for a Cause today

    Even though its an off day for the Black and Gold, there's been no shortage of tidbits to go over on a Wednesday afternoon.

    First off, Bruins winger Milan Lucic is still ticked off about Alexi Emelin's hip check that he threw on him on Monday night. Lucic called Emelin "a chicken" after the game, stating clearly he did not like Emelin going after his knees for the takedown. Lucic is still not ready to take back what he said:

    Good on Lucic for knowing how many career hits he has. That's an athlete that knows his business right there.

    As for the status and readiness of defenseman Adam McQuaid, it's getting to the point where we have to seriously consider the possibility of him not playing again this season.

    McQuaid has played just 30 games this year and has been out of action since January 19th with a quad strain. When Coach Claude Julien was asked for an update on the status of McQuaid, Julien simply replied:

    "No, nothing. He's still working off-ice, but he hasn't been on the ice yet."

    Not the greatest of things you want to hear when looking for a positive word on the return of McQuaid.

    Finally, the Bruins will partake in the 7th annual Cuts for a Cause charity event today, with a majority of the B's going under the buzzer to shave their heads for charity. Three players will not shave their heads, as they simply cannot be seen in public with a hit to their style.

    Tuukka Rask, Brad Marchand and Loui Eriksson will all skip the buzzcut session, but the players have pledged to donate money towards the charity in exchange for their hair. So all is forgiven.

    Check back on BruinsLife later today for a recap of the charity event and to see all the pictures of the new hairdo's for the Black and Gold (or lack thereof).
