Milan Lucic Gives Alex Burrows the Finger (Video)

Milan Lucic was the second Boston Bruins player to get back at the Canucks for Alex Burrows biting Patrice Bergeron in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. First it was Mark Recchi sticking his glove in Maxim Lapierre’s face, then it was Lucic taunting with his finger. Check out the video:

There is little doubt Lucic slashed Burrows and took a cheap punch at him behind the net before Burrows reacted, so that was all on Lucic. Still, as a Bruins fan, it’s hard to say it wasn’t worth it. The best part is Boston scored to make it 5-0 right after that, and went on to win 8-1. With a goalie like Roberto Luongo, it’s hard to say he’ll just put the poor performance behind him. Luongo’s a notorious head case who will hopefully carry the shoddy showing with him the rest of the series.

Video: Alex Burrows Bites Patrice Bergeron

Vancouver Canucks winger Alex Burrows wasted no time acquainting himself with the penalty box in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. First he was penalized for high sticking, and then later in the period he mixed it up with Bruins center Patrice Bergeron. Video replays showed that Burrows bit the finger of Bergeron in a Mike Tyson moment. Check out the video:

Burrows had already racked up six penalty minutes in only one period of hockey. Bergeron had to show the refs the bite marks on his finger on his way to the penalty box because they didn’t see it. Hopefully the NHL office will come down on Burrows for his savage action.
