Andrew Ference Apologetic For Finger Incident In Game 4

Andrew Ference gave Montreal Canadiens fans another reason to hate the Bruins, giving the crowd a middle finger after his goal in the second period. Ference was fined $2,500 for the incident, and told reporters after the game that it was strictly incidental.

"It looks awful; I just saw it," said Ference follwing the game. "I can assure you that's not part of my repertoire. I think my glove got caught up. I can assure you that's not part of who I am or what I ever have been. It looks awful. I admit it and I completely apologize to how it looks. I was putting my fist in the air. I'm sorry. It does look awful. I don't know what else to say."

"Honestly, I have no idea [how it happened]," he said. "It looks really bad. All I can do is tell you the truth, and [my finger getting stuck in my glove is] the truth. 

"I totally agree it looks bad. I can assure you that's not who I am or ever will be. I was pumping my fist in the air. I don't score too many goals and that's about all I have in my [celebration] repertoire."    

I've never heard of a glove getting caught up in that position, but by all accounts, it seems that Ference is a stand up guy. Even still, it would have been understandable for Ference to get caught up in the moment and make a mistake, especially with all of the drama surrounding this Boston-Montreal series. Nevertheless, it doesn't make it acceptable.
