BOSTON - 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 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 anyway.

"I think he tried to pull my teeth out," Savard said. "If that's biting, I don't know what to say."
