Canucks Take Bite Out of Bruins in Game 1

Burrows could face discipline for apparent bite

      VANCOUVER (AP) – Canucks forward Alex Burrows could face
discipline from the NHL after he appeared to bite the finger of
Boston's Patrice Bergeron during Vancouver's 1-0 victory in Game 1
of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday night.
      In a game with a surprising amount of nastiness for two teams
that meet once a season, Burrows and Bergeron were in the middle of
a big melee behind the Boston net at the end of the first period.
Replays appear to show Burrows chomp down as Bergeron reached over
a linesman to put his glove in Burrow's face.
      Bergeron, who played mostly against the Canucks top line, went
straight to the referees after holding up the index finger on his
right hand, and said during a second intermission television
interview that Burrows bit him twice.
