Don’t let the 1-0 score fool you.  Last night’s opening game of the Stanley Cup Finals was filled with plenty of great scoring chances and other interesting moments, including the one that occurred after 20 minutes of play.

To most, what transpired along the boards following the buzzer seemed like just another post-whistle playoff hockey scrum, but replays show that it was much more than that, as Alex Burrows decided to take a bit out of Patrice Bergeron’s finger while the two were exchanging face-washes.

Both players received roughing penalties on the play, with Burrows being assessed the extra two minutes.  However, you can expect him to receive more than that, as the league will likely look into the incident and may hand the Canucks forward a suspension if they feel he was guilty of the infraction.  As for Bergeron, he voiced his displeasure over the incident during an interview with CBC’s Elliotte Friedman during the first intermission.
