In the second period of Game 4 between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference scored to cut the lead to 3-2. After the goal, Ference skated toward the glass and gave an obscene gesture to the Canadiens fans.

After the Bruins won 5-4 in overtime, Ference addressed the incident.

"It looks awful. I just saw it," he said. "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."
