Surprise, surprise. Kevin Bieksa is talking.

The outspoken Canucks defenseman called out the Bruins after the Canucks defeated the B’s, 4-3, Saturday at TD Garden. Both Milan Lucic [1] and Brad Marchand [2] were tossed from the game, and Bieksa offered his thoughts afterwards.

“We play hard, but we are a disciplined team,” Bieksa said. “That’€™s what separates us from them. They obviously play hard, but they tend to do stupid things. The Marchand hit was a pretty stupid thing and I’€™m sure he’€™ll be getting a phone call for that one. There is no reason for that. But we made them pay for that. We got to score two goals on that power play and that’€™s the game. He’€™s got to live with that.”

Bieksa has been outspoken against the Bruins since the two teams met in the Stanley Cup [3] finals last season. The defenseman made fun of the Bruins for passing around Andrew Ference [4]‘s jacket, saying the tradition was something that pee-wee teams do. He also responded to Mark Recchi [5] calling the Canucks “arrogant” by saying the retired forward should “take a nap.”
