Alex Burrows bites
Patrice Bergeron

Stanley Cup Final: Game 1 (June 2, 2011)

During a scrum at the end of the first period, Canucks winger Alex Burrows appeared to bite the finger of Bruins center Patrice Bergeron. The NHL later declined to suspend Burrows after reviewing the incident and finding "no conclusive evidence" of the bite, although Bergeron was seen wearing a bandage on his finger after the game. But a fuse was lit, and after Burrows scored two goals, including the winner, in Game 2, Max Lapierre of the Canucks taunted Bergeron by waving fingers in his face. It was a gesture the Bruins used during their 8-1 rout of Vancouver in a heated Game 3.
