During Monday's contest between the Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins, Philadelphia's Carcillo accused Boston's Savard of biting his finger in a scrum.
At 5:55 of the second period, Savard tried to swipe at a puck gloved by Flyers goalie Brian Boucher . That led to defenseman Kimmo Timonen and Carcillo going after the Boston forward. When Carcillo put Savard in a headlock, his glove fell off.
After linesmen broke up the incident, the Flyers winger held out his index finger, suggesting Savard bit him.
Savard ended up with a slashing minor, while Carcillo was sent back to the bench to tend to his hand.
