Milan Lucic posted a photo on Wednesday that can be described as pure Bruins porn. In fact, that’s exactly the description given to it by his former Bruins teammate Johnny Boychuk.

The former Bruins winger recently met up with his ex-linemates David Krejci and Nathan Horton, and was able to snap a photo with them. Good thing he did, because who knows how often these three will be in the same place again. Check it out and try to contain your orgasms.

Bruins fans should universally look back on the Lucic-Krejci-Horton line fondly. Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand have gone to such a high level in recent years that it’s easy to forget they used to be the second or third line at best. In the Bruins’ 2011 Stanley Cup-winning run, Krejci was the top center with his band of barbarians flanking him.

The trio combined for 25 goals and 52 points in 71 playoff games between them. Horton will forever be part of Bruins lore after scoring two Game 7 series-clinching goals, then squirting some Boston water onto the ice in Vancouver before the Bruins mauled the favored Canucks in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. Krejci went on a Conn Smythe-caliber run with a playoff-leading 23 points and would’ve won the award if not for Tim Thomas. And Lucic embodied the Bruins’ toughness and resolve that powered their run in the first place.

It’s amazing that, nine years later, the Bruins are still searching for a right wing that sticks with Krejci beyond, like, half a season. Nobody has come close to matching what Horton and Lucic achieved, particularly in the playoffs. Nice for Bruins fans to see them reunited, if only for a quick photo op.
