Maxim Lapierre Mocks Patrice Bergeron Bite During Game 2
In Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Vancouver winger Alex Burrows bit the finger of Patrice Bergeron towards the end of the first period (watch the video). The NHL didn’t suspend Burrows because they could not conclude he bit Bergeron. It was hard-to-believe logic, but it paid off for Vancouver; Burrows scored Vancouver’s game-winner 11 seconds into overtime of Game 2, their first goal, and he assisted in their second. As if that wasn’t insulting enough for Bruins fans, center Maxim Lapierre mocked Bergeron during Game 2. Check out the video courtesy of Puck Daddy:
That’s just classless. Vancouver caught a break from the NHL’s decision-makers and got lucky when they know Burrows should have been suspended. It’s painful knowing a guy who shouldn’t have been playing is the one who burned you, but then you have guys like Lapierre rubbing it in to make it worse. Hopefully this won’t be the end of the story for Boston and they’ll be able to exact revenge.
