Boston Bruins winger Milan Lucic had words for Canadiens players Dale Weise and Alexei Emelin in the post-game handshake after the Habs beat them to advance to the conference final Wednesday.

But precisely what he said isn't clear.

Video from the game shows Lucic shaking hands with most players normally before he stops to address Weise directly and then moves on to speak with Emelin.

TSN analyst Aaron Ward alleged that Lucic said, "I'm going to bleepin' kill you next year."

Weise did not reveal what he said, but he called the player classless for his antics, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

For his part, Lucic did not reveal what he said, telling reporters, "It's said on the ice so it will stay on the ice, so if he wants to be a baby about it, he can make it public."

Earlier in the series, Lucic beat his chest to celebrate a goal and flexed toward Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban from the bench, CBC News reported.

Weise carried out similar actions in the series, flexing toward the Boston power forward in Game 6.

The post-game handshake prompted a Twitter hashtag, #WhatLucicToldWeise, in which users speculated humorously on what Lucic said to the Montreal player.
