Alex Burrows and Patrice Bergeron

Canucks winger Alex Burrows appeared to bite the right finger of Bruins center Patrice Bergeron during the first game of the 2011 Stanley Cup finals. Bergeron was seen wearing a bandage on his finger after the game. Mike Murphy, the NHL's Senior Vice President of Operations, announced the following day that Burrows would not be suspended for the incident. "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," Murphy wrote in a release issued by the NHL.
