No suspension for Vancouver’s Alex Burrows in biting incident

The NHL [1] has decided not to suspend Vancouver forward Alex Burrows after he apparently bit Boston’s Patrice Bergeron [2] in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup [3] finals.

“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,” said NHL [4] vice president Mike Murphy.

Burrows has denied biting Bergeron, to which the Bruins’ forward said, “Oh yeah, he did. He cut me a little bit on my finger, but I’m not going to complain about it. I’ll let the league do their job, but he sure did [bite me].”
