Report: Mike Richards Threatens to Knock Marc Savard Out ‘For Another Six Weeks’


Though Daniel Carcillo's accusations that Marc Savard bit his finger in a scrum stole the headlines overnight following the Bruins' 3-2 win over the Flyers, it was something that was reportedly said on the ice that may have been worse.

As Savard skated to the penalty box after getting slashed and punched by Carcillo, Flyers captain Mike Richards threatened the Bruins' top center, according to's Joe Haggerty.

"You were out for six weeks?" Richards reportedly asked Savard. "We'll put you out for another six weeks."

Richards, of course, quite famously collided with David Booth of the Florida Panthers back in October, leaving Booth with a concussion. Booth didn't play for three full months, and he suffered another concussion in late March, ending his season.

Haggerty did not reveal who exactly passed along that bit of information, but whether it's true or not won't prevent it from adding fuel to the fire that is this Bruins-Flyers series.
