Claude Julien Says Alexandre Burrows’ Bite, Maxim Lapierre’s Subsequent Taunt Wouldn’t Have Been Accepted on Bruins


The Bruins and Canucks only played once during the regular season, but it hasn't led to any shortage of bad blood in the Stanley Cup Final. The two teams are developing a bit of hatred for each other.

When asked about Alexandre Burrows' Game 1 bite and Maxim Lapierre's Game 2 taunt, during which he stuck his fingers near the mouth of Patrice Bergeron, Bruins head coach Claude Julien said it certainly wouldn't have been acceptable on his end.

"The NHL rules on something, and they decide to make a mockery of it," Julien said about the Canucks. "That's totally up to them. That's their way of handling things, so be it."

Vancouver head coach Alain Vigneault responded when he addressed the media.
