Watching the whole vid with Gionta is not only more revealing but also funnier.
I think Bourque was just trying to get Orr off Gionta. Since Orr threw his gloves down, Bourque was just trying to save his captain's life. I actually feel sorry for Bourque. He took one for his captain.

I don't blame Orr for the punch on Bourque, since he didn't know the intentions of the player grabbing him from behind in that situation, but there was really no need to throw his gloves and engage Gionta. I could see some of the other heavies in the NHL giving him a pretty good ribbing on that one.
