VANCOUVER — One night Vancouver forward Alexandre Burrows takes a bite out of Bruins center Patrice Bergeron’s finger, three nights later he takes the bite out of the Bruins with two goals and one assist in a 3-2 overtime win in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.
In between, Burrows avoided suspension after a hearing with the league. The league deemed there was no conclusive evidence to prove Burrows purposely bit Bergeron’s finger.
If the league had YouTube and would’ve watched the video, maybe Burrows gets a ban and doesn’t burn the Bruins tonight.
Head coach Claude Julien, however, wasn’t buying that line of logic.
“That has nothing to do with that. I never thought about that that way,” he said after the loss at Rogers Arena that dropped his team to 0-2 down in the series. “They made a decision. We moved on. For us, if we start using that as an excuse, we’re a lame team.
“To me, it’s not even a consideration.”
