Boston Bruins left wing Milan Lucic physical presence heating up at right time heading into playoffs with Toronto …
It’s been a down season for Boston Bruins left winger Milan Lucic.
But over the last few games of the regular season, it appears his confidence is coming back – and just in the nick of time as the Bruins gear up for their first-round playoff series with the Toronto Maple Leafs, which opens Wednesday at 7 p.m. at TD Garden.
“I feel really good about that,” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said of Lucic’s game in a conference call Monday. “His last two games have been very, very good … moving his feet, strong on the puck, good shooting, physical. Hes really picked up his game, and thats the type of game we need to have success in the playoffs.”
Lucic finished the regular season with seven goals and 20 assists with a plus-8 rating. In his last two games, he had a goal, two assists, and a bout with Ottawa Senator Chris Neil.
Lucic is suppose to be one of Boston’s top guns with linemates center David Krejci and right winger Nathan Horton, but has been anything but in the lockout-shortened season.
His level of conditioning was questioned once the lockout ended. He appeared to be fatigued in captain’s practices after opting not to play overseas like 12 of his teammates did.
Lucic erased that talk with an explosive start where he compiled eight points over the first 11 games and had three stretches of contributing a point in three consecutive games from January through the beginning of March. But that fizzled out and his level of play plummeted.
Everyone knows Lucic plays best when he’s physically engaged. In order for the Bruins to move past the first round, he needs to continue on the path he’s on by landing monster checks, winning puck battles, strong fore checking, and getting in the Leafs’ faces. A fight wouldn’t hurt either.
Lucic isn’t the only player guilty of not performing to the best of his ability, Chiarelli noted. A huge issue is putting the puck in the net.
“Youre not going to win a heck of a lot of game by scoring two goals a game. The finishing off youve heard me say this before, a number of times youve got to get to those areas, those traffic areas,” Chiarelli said. “Youve got to get those dirty goals, and youve got to hit the net. We havent been doing that with the frequency that Id like, so thats the kind of stuff that Im talking about, thats the kind of stuff that you have to do.”

Racers reach the finish line of the first Palestinian marathon in the West Bank town of Bethlehem on Sunday.
By Paul Goldman, Producer, NBC News
BETHLEHEM, West Bank Jesus’ traditional birthplace has long been linked to tensions between Israel and the Palestinians. On Sunday, around 650 athletes took a step towards transforming Bethlehem’s modern image by running in the first official Palestinian marathon.
Its a strange site to see people run in the West Bank, said runner Dina Khuri, 21, from Beit Sahour. Usually when people run here it has to do with violence, but this time its for fun.”

Security was tight in the wake of the Boston attacks that killed three and injured more than 170 on Monday. Before the event, organizers said they were “deeply saddened by the news from Boston.”
For George Zeidan from Jerusalem, the marathon was not only about fitness.
“Sports (are) my inspiration and my way of identifying myself,” he wrote in a blog posted on the marathon website before the race. “I am running for the freedom of Palestine and my people. I am running to inform everybody that we Palestinians are just like everyone else, we run, dance, sing, play, jump, and have fun, not only that but we are also good at it.”

Bethelem, April 21 (IANS) About 1,000 Palestinian and foreign runners participated Sunday in the first West Bank marathon that highlights Israeli restrictions in the Palestinian territories.
The race starting point was in front of the Church of the Nativity, the traditional birthplace of Jesus. The athletes ran four times around the holy city and in several points the race track went along the concrete barrier Israel has been building in the West Bank since 2002, reports Xinhua.
The organisers say that the ‘Rights to Movement’ marathon is an attempt to demonstrate the sufferings caused by the barrier and the Israeli checkpoints in the West Bank. Jebrel Al-Rajoob of the Palestinian Olympic Committee said that the participation of runners from 30 countries and regions “proves that the Palestinian people enjoy global solidarity”.
“This is a message to the Israelis to stop imposing facts on the ground unilaterally and that the Palestinian people have their right in an independent state,” Al-Rajoob said.
Before starting to run, the competitors made a minute of silence to remember the victims of Boston Marathon attacks.
Meanwhile, Al-Rajoob slammed Israel for banning 26 athletes in the Gaza Strip from travelling to the West Bank to join the race. “This is an evidence of the Israeli hatred toward sport and humanity.”
The participants came from Europe and the United States. The organisers also say that Israel prevented Arab runners from Libya and the United Arab Emirates from entering the West Bank.

UMass Boston’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) hosted Israeli Apartheid week April 1-5 to raise awareness of the debate that is raging in the Middle East. The SJP held several events including a rally, a panel, and a movie to show their views of the conflict.
The movie, Roadmap to Apartheid, was screened in the Campus Center on April 1. The movie aimed to show similarities between the former South African Apartheid government and the current Israeli government. Israel supported South Africa during the Apartheid era by providing military equipment and training, even though many other countries would not deal with the country.
The movie suggests the viewpoint that building settlements that are only for Israeli citizens is against international law. Some groups see this as Israel forcing Palestinians off the land. Also, because much of Israel is desert, these settlements use up valuable water resources.
The movie also explained the difference in the legal systems enforce on Palestinians and Israelis. While Israelis follow civil law, Palestinians follow Israeli military laws, and have to pass through checkpoints in order to travel. There are more than 600 checkpoints in the occupied territories.
Palestinian supporters have accused Israel of the blocking of ambulances, and the bombing of power and sewage plants. Some Palestinians believe that Israel controls the food supply to the West Bank, and is purposefully starving the residents.
Tamzid Chowdhury, a member of the SJP, explained the apartheid comparison by saying, If it quacks like a duck, it must be a duck. Segregated road system, segregated buses, restricted freedom of movement for one ethnic group, restricted freedom of expression for one ethnic group – these are all hallmarks of an apartheid state.
According to Chowdhury, Most ordinary US citizens don’t know that Israel gets 8.5 million dollars per day in military aid. Zionist lobbies and institutions do a great job of wrongly equating criticism of Zionism and Israel to anti-semitism, so a lot of people are unwilling to dig for truth. His statistics are based on a report of 2012 financial expenditures on Israel written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a branch of the United States Library of Congress.

CHICAGO (AP) The nation’s most influential pediatrician’s group has endorsed gay marriage, saying a stable relationship between parents regardless of sexual orientation contributes to a child’s health and well-being.
The American Academy of Pediatrics’ new policy, published online Thursday, cites research showing that the parents’ sexual orientation has no effect on a child’s development. Kids fare just as well in gay or straight families when they are nurturing and financially and emotionally stable, the academy says.
The academy believes that a two-parent marriage is best equipped to provide that kind of environment. Their policy says that if a child has two gay parents who choose to marry, “it is in the best interests of their children that legal and social institutions allow and support them to do so.”
The policy cites reports indicating that almost 2 million U.S. children are being raised by gay parents, many of them in states that don’t allow gays to marry.
The academy announced its position Thursday. Officials with the group said they wanted to make the academy’s views known before two gay marriage cases are considered by the U.S. Supreme Court next week.
“We wanted that policy statement available for the justices to review,” said Dr. Thomas McInerney, the academy’s president and a pediatrician in Rochester, N.Y.
The pediatricians’ stance is not surprising. They previously joined other national groups including the American Medical Association in supporting one of the Supreme Court cases, which contends the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. The academy also previously supported adoption by gay parents.
The academy’s statement notes that several other national health groups have supported gay marriage. Those are the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association and the American College of Nursing.
Dr. Ben Siegel, a Boston pediatrician and chairman of an academy committee that developed the new policy, said its focus is on “nurturing children. We want what’s best for children.”
Spring is here and so too are Israel Apartheid Week and poison ivy. Apartheid Week is an insult to all thinking Americans in and out of academia, just as poison ivy is an irritant to our skin and well-being. Charles Jacobs, founder of the Boston-based Americans for Peace and Tolerance, reminds us of the venality of the Apartheid Week movement as it personally attacks and intimidates individual students while playing havoc with the truth on campuses throughout the country. At Harvard, he tells us, students personal space was violated when eviction notices were pasted to the doors of their dormitory rooms by members of the so-called Palestine Solidarity Committee. This kind of Saul Alinsky in-your-face type of intimidation goes beyond the norms of society and it, along with the threat and reality of physical harm, is behavior that ought not be tolerated. Nasty apartheid walls a mockery of the barriers Israel has used to effectively defend its citizens from the real and present danger of terrorism and other symbolic constructs are springing up on campuses around the country as a way to push forward lies about Israels alleged discrimination against its Arab minority. Meanwhile, no matter how depraved and vile the mendacity of the Arab effort, college administrators generally, under the false flag of free speech, stand aside. It is a stretch to interpret the actions of these Apartheid Week demonstrators as speech that is free if it is aimed at those it targets and bullies. Almost more egregious than the lack of college reaction to the intimidation of Jewish students is the lack of a full-throated response from key elements of the Jewish community. Yes, there are groups that are active. Charles Jacobs American Peace and Tolerance, The David Project (another group Jacobs helped found), the Zionist Organization of America, Stand-With-Us, Campus Watch, CAMERA and others are now working on many campuses, but coordination is yet to happen and much goes undone. Hillel, in the best position of any Jewish organization to respond on campus, has a mixed effort with a Shaliach program on 56 campuses and active support for the Israel on Campus Coalition, an organization it helped start. But it does not deal with Apartheid Week directly nor does it confront this systemic threat on all campuses. There are, of course some stellar participants who rise to the occasion. A stalwart cadre of Hillel leaders around the country who have seen this all before deal with it bravely and with intelligence. But there is also a passivity on a number of campuses and not just where there is an absence of any organized Jewish presence. Even more difficult though, are campuses where faculty and/or administration aid and abet the intimidation of Jewish students and demean pro-Israel opinion. Columbia University and Brooklyn College stand out as recent examples of this type of travesty. Federations too are more often than not capable of only the most pro forma actions, and rarely connect with students and faculty on campus who have to confront these falsehoods. The Apartheid Week people, on the other hand are well programmed, intrusive and without opposition too often have free reign on campus for their hatred and lies. The proper answer for the besieged pro-Israel students and faculty on every campus, of course, is the ultimate one: the truth. Not a defensive truth or a partial one. But a focus on the Israeli reality in which five million Jews and two million Arabs, both Christian and Muslim, live together in a democratic open society. It is the Arab Middle East where the mirror image of Israel exists. That is the land of hatred and apartheid. That is the land where the ancient Jewish presence was excised by either forced emigration or violent intimidation, and the slaughter of Christians, Jews and other minorities, including Muslims who dont practice Islam in the way the majority prescribes it, continues. That is the land where women are demeaned and gays persecuted. It is the land of countries where personal freedom exists hardly at all. For some reason, our organizations and leaders shy away from these truths and because of that they are absent from this very argument. It is Israel where all citizens have the right to vote. It is Israel where democratic institutions such as a free media exist. In a more rational world it would be Arab apartheid that would be highlighted this month, while Israels bravery for being that lonely beacon of individual rights and democracy for all would be celebrated. Israel Apartheid Week as we know it is a total fabrication meant to snare the unknowing and seduce the uninformed. It is foreign to our soil and ought to be opposed by every American. Two things you can do: 1) Ephraim Karsh of the Middle East Forum provides an excellent essay on the previous page. Read it and forward it to anyone on a college campus whose email address you may have (the essay may also be forwarded from the Ledger website, www.jewishledger.com). 2) Support organizations and individuals actively involved in this struggle; work with Hillel and urge them to stand tall; take steps to fill the void on campuses without any Jewish organization. Working to bring the Jewish world together on this issue is the best way to let those who malign Israel and murder the truth know they cant do it with impunity. Its unfortunate that this apartheid accusation occurs every spring. But as we pointed out, so does poison ivy. Poison Ivy and the lies of Apartheid Week never fully go away, but when summer comes we usually have them both under control.
