Lapierre’s antics wouldn't last in Boston

BOSTON --- Maxim Lapierre’s act wouldn’t last long in Boston, Bruins coach Claude Julien said before Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday.

“If it's acceptable for them, then so be it,” Julien said. “Certainly [it] wouldn't be acceptable on our end of it. I think you know me enough to know that. Not much I can say on that.”

Lapierre mocked Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron, who accused Vancouver’s Alex Burrows of biting one of his fingers in Game 1. Lapiere attempted to put his fingers in Bergeron’s mouth during Game 2.

Minutes after Julien’s comments, Lapierre set the land speed record for use of the phrase, “I’m not going to comment on that.”

“I’m not going to comment on that,” Lapierre said when asked if he had a reaction to Julien’s statement. “Everybody is trying their best to win the games. What happened on the ice, happened on the ice. I’m not going to comment on that.”

Lapierre did stray off script when asked if he enjoyed being an agitator. A little.

“I think everybody has their role,” Lapierre said. “We are trying to work as hard as we can to win a game.”

Sounds like a hypocritical, ignorant, bigot who has a picture of GB on his nightstand.  Who made you an expert in French-Canadian hockey players: Don Cherry's school of bigotry 101?  In case you have Ference's finger blocking your ear instead of your ass, tell me more about French-Canadian hockey players from Mario to Lafleur to St. Louis; none of them act like goons from the remake of SlapShot.  They're too busy winning the Cup instead of playing talented hockey such as Gregory daddy's watching Campbell and Milan "leadfoot and uglier than marchand Lucic.

Wonder what Claude Julien is telling his players now:

won't tolerate that behaviour in our dressing room, but maybe on the ice...........

Bruins suck; cheer on the rich Red Sox and their fantasy roster

Lapierre is scum.  Guys like him and Sean Avery are an embarasment to the game.

I'm no fan of Lapierre, but why won't he continue with his antics?
Are any of the Bruins players willing to risk taking a penalty that might lead to a PP goal just to try and end Lapierre's on ice trolling?

Agreed. If Burrows and Lapierre have the Bruins coaches and players talking about them even when they are down 2 games....why would they stop? Head games are part of hockey and Vancouver is winning the mind games.

The Bruins seem to be trying to gel as a unit five on five, and get some specialty teams involvement. That is the focus here. They will move in that direction, the rest is'nt even a consideration. If the Bruins can be successful, you can consider it retrbibution for the antics of Burrows, and Lapierre, if you want. However I don't think the Bruins will until this is done. Burrows and Lapierre are both French Canadien by the way. I don't know if these proceedings do much in the way of shedding good light on French Canadien hockey. Personally I think the French are exactly what Burrows, and Lapierre represent, Chicken-#@8t squirrils. In the old days when fighting was legal, the French, were too chicken to fight themselves, so they taunted, and hid behind the goons. Or they hid behind the refs. They use to curl up in a fetal position and bury their heads in the ice when they got knocked down, and often they would cry like babies for the refs, with literal tears. Actually, they sometimes cried like blubbery, tears, streaming, and wailing cries, like spoilt babies that didn't get their way. Sometimes they would outright run from a player trying to get at them, or even jump over the boards and run into the crowd, in sheer fright, and screams of help! Literally running for dear life. Thats French Canadien Hockey.
