MONTREAL — Following their Game 4 win over the Canadiens, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference [1] denied any intention of making an obscene gesture at Habs fans following his second-period goal. Following his tally, which at the time made it a 3-2 game, the veteran was caught on camera giving the middle finger to the crowd.

‘€œCoach just showed me it, and it looks awful,’€ Ference said following the win. ‘€œI just saw it and I can assure you that’€™s not part of my repertoire. I don’€™t know if my glove got caught up. I can assure you, that’€™s not part of who I am or what I ever have been. So it looks awful, I admit it, I completely apologize to how it looks. You guys have covered me long enough to know that that’€™s not part of my repertoire.

‘€œI was putting my fist in the air,’€ he added. ‘€œI’€™m sorry it does look awful. I just saw it.’€

Ference can be fined up to $2,500 for the gesture.

‘€œHonestly, I have no idea,’€ he said of whether he’€™ll pay for it. ‘€œIt looks really bad, but all I can do is tell you the truth and that’€™s the truth.’€

Coach Claude Julien [2] said in his postgame press conference that he had not seen the play.
