Video: Alex Burrows Bites Patrice Bergeron in Game 1, Not Punished

Alex Burrows bites Patrice Bergeron

We know both teams are hungry for the Stanley Cup, but Canucks winger Alex Burrows took that hunger to a whole new level. Sometime near the end of the first period in between whistles, Burrows bit Patrice Bergeron’s finger while the two were being separated by an official.

Yep, he bit him. While it wasn’t nearly as bad as Mike Tyson biting Evander Holyfield, it still “has no place in the NHL,” according to Mike Millbury.

League disciplinarians had a chance to lay the hammer down on Burrows, but instead they opted not to punish him at all on Thursday. He won’t be fined or suspended. Really? I guess that means Zdeno Chara can bite Henrik Sedin without facing any repercussions.

  1. The last biting incident cost the offender 2 games.Why not this time?
    Just a chicken call by the front office. Apparently they don’t want Vancouver short for the cup. Are you sure it isn’t soccer?
