Alex Burrows-Patrice Bergeron Bite Video: 2011 Stanley Cup Finals
Did Alex Burrows Bite Patrice Bergeron During Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals? Here is the Alex Burrows-Patrice Bergeron Bite Video
The Stanley Cup Finals 2011 are underway and we already have our first bit of controversy. During Game 1 of the series between the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins, Alex Burrows appeared to bite the finger of Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron.
The Alex Burrows bite on Patrice Bergeron occurred at the end of the first period. Bergeron and Burrows went at it and Burrows appeared to bite Bergeron's gloved finger. As they left to the dressing room, Bergeron took his glove off and showed his finger to officials, arguing that he was bitten.
If NHL officials conclude that Alex Burrows did in fact bite Patrice Bergeron, he might face a suspension. Two years ago, Ottawa's Jarkko Ruutu was suspended after biting Buffalo's Andrew Peters.
