Bruins Ference Says Finger To Montreal Fans Was Accident

BOSTON (AP/CBS) – Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference did not mean to give Montreal fans the middle finger after scoring his second period goal in Boston’s 5-4 overtime win Thursday night.

“I think my glove got caught up,” Ference said. “I can assure you that’s not part of who I am or what I ever have been.”

Ference made an obscene gesture to the capacity crowd of 21,273 after he drove a slap shot past Carey Price midway through the second to draw Boston to 3-2.

“It looks awful, I admit it,” said Ference. “I completely apologize about how it looks.”

“I’m shocked, and I don’t know whether it happened or what,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the game. “I’d be very surprised, that’s not his style at all.”
