The bark continues long after the bite.
Vancouver's Alex Burrows bit Boston's Patrick Bergeron in Game One of the Stanley Cup final. After Burrows avoided suspension, Vancouver forward Maxim Lapierre taunted Bergeron about the incident in Game Two, pointing his finger near Bergeron's mouth as if daring him to bite it.
Prior to Game Three, Boston coach Claude Julien said the actions made a mockery of the game ... then during Game Three, Boston's Mark Recchi and Milan Lucic did the same thing.
"I said this morning that I wouldn't accept it on our team," Julien said after Boston's 8-1 victory Monday. "It happened a couple of times tonight. They've been told that I don't want any of that stuff. You've got to live by your words. It was disappointing for me to see that happen after what I said this morning, but part of it is my fault for not bringing it up (enough) to the guys. They did it. Emotions got the better of them."
