And in Game 2, he actually bit Dan 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 the Flyers tough guy's finger was doing in his mouth anyway.
“I think he tried to pull my teeth out,” Savard said. “If that's biting, I don't know what to say.”
