Julien Discusses The Taunting Bite

from Joe McDonald of ESPNBoston,

During a scrum in the third period of Game 2, the Canucks’ Maxim Lapierre was taunting Bergeron by sticking his finger in his face.

Julien was asked Monday morning about Lapierre’s gesture toward Bergeron.

“I can’t really talk about their team,” Julien said.

Then he did.

“I don’t handle those players. I don’t deal with those players on a one-on-one basis. It’s not up to me to comment on it and if that’s acceptable for them, so be it,” he said. “Certainly wouldn’t be acceptable on our end of it. There’s not much I can say about that.

“The NHL ruled on something and (the Canucks) decided to make a mockery of it. It’s totally up to them. If that’s their way of handling things, so be it. We can’t waste our time on that sort of stuff. We have to focus on what we have to do. Last time I looked, we’re down two games to none, and all our energy has to go towards that.”
