‘Bite-Gate’ probably won’t go away, but Savard hopes

Savard takes a bite.

PHILADELPHIA — Bruins center Marc Savard is trying his hardest in public to get everyone to turn the page from Daniel Carcillo’s bit accusation from Monday’s Game 2, but that’s not likely to deter the Flyers fans at Wachovia Center tonight for Game 3 to pour it on the would-be chomper.

“It doesn’t worry me. I just go out and play and that stuff’s happened before, in different cities, but it doesn’t worry me,” said Savard this morning after the Bruins’ skate.

No league discipline was issued to Savard. One report, however, had the league talking to the Bruins’ organization about the incident. Carcillo, who Tuesday said he hoped to get matched up against Savard’s line in Game 3, was more tight-lipped with just about eight hours until game time.

“I don’t know, we’ll see what happens. Not really,” he said about possible carryover from Game 2. “I don’t want to talk too much.”

As far as the accusation being a distraction to his team, Savard didn’t want to say much either.

“I’m just worried about the game. I’m not going to get into any of these little side things,” he said.
