“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.”
