BOSTON ---- Maybe the Boston Bruins shouldn’t act so pious.

Midway through the third period, cameras caught Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic mocking Vancouver’s Alex Burrows. Burrows, as has been well-documented by now, was accused in Game 1 of biting the finger of Patrice Begeron, although the league found no conclusive evidence and no suspension was handed down.

Lucic, however, gave Burrows another chance to bite a digit as he stuck his fingers in Burrows’ face during the scrum.

“I said this morning that I wouldn't accept it on our team,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. “It happened a couple of times tonight. They've been told that I don't want any of that stuff. Like I said, you got to live by your words. It was disappointing for me to see that happen.”

Lucic said he feels shame.

“It’s something that this team isn’t about and that I’m not about,” he said. “ It’s definitely a classless move. Claude talked about it. He definitely gave me some heat after the game about it. You regret doing it but, heat of the moment type of thing, things like that will happen.”

The other incident involved veteran Bruins forward Mark Recchi, who beside scoring twice in Boston’s 8-1 victory mocked Vancouver’s Max Lapierre early in the game. In a payback to Lapierre’s Game 2 taunt of Bergeron, Recchi shoved his fingers in Lapierre’s face.

“I got in trouble for that,” Recchi said with a smile.”Coach gave me heck for that. We didn't know this morning that he said something. You know, it's emotional out there, but it won't happen again. You know, it's an emotional game.”

And yeah, the 5'11 180 lb Burrows should totally fight the 6'4 230 lb Lucic, that would definitely be a smart move.
If Burrows doesn't want to get punched then maybe don't hack at the goaltender after teh whistle

Nice to see Julien man up and call his guys out after teh game.  As opposed to the Canucks team, organization and fan base that condones biting.

Lucic is a little twerp punk that doesn't have a place in the game he is like Avery XXL. 

The sad thing is is that you liking Lucic belting Burrows in the head when he was defenseless is actually what Bruins fans think is "good hockey".

If anything is sad sack its the hockey town of Boston.  Not to mentinon Bruins fans are some of the most fairweather you will find.

And yeah, the 5'11 180 lb Burrows should totally fight the 6'4 230 lb Lucic, that would definitely be a smart move.

Lucic is a twerp for sticking up for his goalie? Okay thats smart. While I do agree it may not be "good hockey" in one aspect it was something that needed to be done. The Canucks have been playing dirty and  taking tons of cheap shots so the Bruins have had to reurn the favor. ESPECIALLY when it comes to the most important guy on your team,,Tim Thomas.

You say Bruins fans are the most fairweather you will find? How do you know? Ever lived around there? Judging just by these boards? I know the Bruins have some fairweather fans but guess what....every single team does. Having lived in Eastern Mass for 36 of my 40 years I can tell you for a fact. most Bruins fans are more diehard than you would ever guess. Then again you are probably just a pathetic hater.

While it may not be a smart move for Burrows to fight Chara or just about any Bruin for that matter it is also not a smart move to bite or pull hair like that little wench does. If you commit lowdown scumbag acts like those you need to be ready to man up and take whats coming to you. Wait and see. The rest of the league has taken notice of this louse and they will not be as nice as the Bruins have been to him. I also think alot of teams in the west will start playing a much more physical game against the Canucks and the Nucks will be hard pressed the next season or two. This series is far from over,especially with the bad blood created by Vancouver.

So now, please go home put on the special helmet and lick the windows until your toungue is sore, the adults are talking now.

Wow guys, enough of the whole Canadians/U.S. thing. I have been to Canada many times,played alot of pond hockey there while wearing my Bruins jerseys over the years and yes I met a few d-bags but I also got to play with MANY great guys and true hockey fans. Same is true for my times playing in New England. The diving/cheap shots/acting is not a function of what country a person is from. I do agree that Vancouer has been far more classless than I ever expected but again that is not a function of where the players are from.  It would do the refs a big favor to start calling the players (sedins and Burrows mainly) for the ignorant embellishments. They remind me of Mike Ribiero. I mean grabbing your face like you took an axe to the noggin and then getting right up when no call is made? How damn sad is that. I do wish the refs would call it and put a stop to it but to their credit at least they have not fallen for it.  One last time though, all the garbage had nothing to do with the counrties. So drop that crap.

borthor, are you in the military? Do you in some capacity serve the greater good? If you can't answer a definitive "YES" to either question, you need to just stop because you're no different than the Canada and Canadians of your imagination.

Can we please just keep this to hockey and leave the stupid, ignorant and irrelevant comments about nations and their citizens out of it?

I don't know about everyone else but the only person I actually like more partway through this series is Claude Julien. I'm kind of disappointed in everybody else, Bruins and Canucks.

Are you like Kesler now??? Talk big and wait until zebras arrive... get rescued... talk big again?  Is that your modus operandi?  Oh yeah, sure is.  Just like how Canada is.  Talk big and wait for the US to come in and make it all happen.  Don't worry, we'll come up and save your keisters when its needed.

You keep saying "just how Canada is" in your posts but you're a typical loser... you don't know a thing about Canada.  Second of all the beginning of your post is hilarious, thanks for the laugh.  You're the idiot going into chats like this smashing Canada when we all know what would happen if you ever did visit Canada.  There would be a lot of please and thank you coming out of your mouth... you wouldn't have the balls to talk like that in our country... let me know when you're in town... I'll take you and your buddies to a couple places where you can let your feelings of Canada be known..... all I would hear out of your mouth is little chirping bird noises... you'll make Kessel look like a tough guy and hero....
