Widely reported by now, there was no suspension handed down for Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows after a blatant — or not-so blatant — bite of Boston Bruins Patrice Bergeron’s finger last night in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
At the end of the first period — tied 0-0 — at Rogers Arena last night, things got heated between Burrows and Bergeron after the sound of the horn. Some pushing, shoving, and pie-facing ensued, followed by Burrows sinking his teeth into the B’s center.
Mike Murphy, the NHL’s Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations, issued the following statement earlier this afternoon:
VANCOUVER (June 2, 2011) – “After reviewing the incident, including speaking with the on-ice officials, I can find no conclusive evidence that Alex Burrows
intentionally bit the finger of Patrice Bergeron.”
