The Biting Games Continue In The Stanley Cup Finals (Videos)
After the Canucks Maxim Lapierre taunted Patrice Bergeron with a finger to the mouth during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Bruins’ coach Claude Julien responded by saying the following:
“If it’s acceptable for (the Canucks), then so be it. Certainly wouldn’t be acceptable on our end of it…The NHL rules on something. They decide to make a mockery of it, that’s totally up to them. If that’s their way of handling things, so be it.”
Well it appears as though Julien’s words to the media didn’t reach his own dressing room as it was his own players making a mockery of the NHL during Game 3 last night as both Mark Recchi and Milan Lucic got in on the taunting by pointing their fingers at the mouths of Lapierre and Burrows, respectively.
Julien addressed the issue following Game 3, saying that he did not want to see that stuff from his team and that it was probably his fault “for not bringing it up to the guys.” But if the Bruins players were so against it following Game 2, isn’t is somewhat hypocritical for them to take part in it during the very next game?
Here is a look at the finger taunting from both Recchi and Lucic during Game 3 last night.
