Flyers Carcillo Claims Savard Bit His Finger

BOSTON (AP) – Boston Bruins forward Marc Savard took a bite out

of Philadelphia's Stanley Cup hopes in Game 1 when he scored the

winning goal in overtime.

And in Game 2, he actually bit Daniel Carcillo's finger, the

Flyers forward said.

Carcillo complained to Canadian broadcaster TSN during the game

that Savard bit him after a whistle at the 5:55 mark of the second

period. Savard slashed at goalie Brian Boucher's glove, drawing a

penalty and the ire of several Flyers who descended upon him.

Carcillo said after the game that he hasn't been bitten since

grade school. He called Savard “pretty cowardly.”

But Savard asked what Carcillo's finger was doing in his mouth


“I think he tried to pull my teeth out,” Savard said. “If

that's biting, I don't know what to say.”
