Mark Recchi Sticks Finger in Maxim Lapierre’s Mouth to Mock the Mock Bite
If you thought the mock biting between the Bruins and Canucks would come to an end after Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, you were wrong. To retrace the history, in Game 1 of the series, Alex Burrows bit Patrice Bergeron at the end of the first period. Burrows was not suspended for Game 2 because the NHL could not conclusively determine Burrows bit Bergeron. He ended up scoring two goals in Game 2 and assisting on the other. Also in Game 2, Maxim Lapierre mocked the bite Bergeron received by sticking his finger in Bergeron’s mouth (watch the video). So what happened in Game 3? Mark Recchi got back at Lapierre by sticking his finger close to his mouth:
Recchi missed a good opportunity in front of the net right before that mock incident, so at least he got something right. And seriously, blood is boiling between these teams, especially after the blindside hit Aaron Rome put on Nathan Horton.
