PHILADELPHIA -- It’s the Stanley Cup playoffs. Things will be said. Players will take exception to things that happen on the ice. This Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Boston Bruins and the Philadelphia Flyers is no different.
Case in point: Whether or not Bruins forward Marc Savard bit the finger of the Flyers’ Dan Carcillo doesn’t really matter. What does matter is the team that’s able to remain focused will have the best success.
After the Bruins held an optional game-day skate this morning at Wachovia Center, Savard dismissed the incident as just playoff hockey.
“I’m just worried about the game,” he said. “I’m not going to get into those little side things. I’m just worried about tonight’s game.”
Savard said he’s not insulted by the accusations
“I just want to win tonight’s game. That’s all I’m thinking about.”
