Bruins' Recchi slams Canucks in radio interview Add to ...

The fallout from last June’s heated Stanley Cup final between Boston and Vancouver hasn’t yet faded away.

Boston Bruins right-winger Mark Recchi unloaded on his team’s bitter rivals during a CBS radio interview on Friday.

“In 22 years, they are the most arrogant team I played against and the most hated team I've ever played against,” Recchi told CBS Radio in Boston. “I couldn't believe their antics; they're falling and diving. It was very frustrating, but at the same time as the series wore on we knew we were getting to them and we knew our physical play and our skating, I think it caught them off guard a little bit.”

Recchi added that it was destiny that the Bruins would hoist the Stanley Cup.

“We played Vancouver late in the season and it was a good game, but I had no doubts that if it came down to a seven-game series, we would the team that would be the champion,” he said.
