Video: Bruins bitten by Burrows ... again
June, 5, 2011
In the video above, ESPN's Steve Levy and Barry Melrose discuss the Bruins' loss to the Canucks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals.
In particular, they praised the play of Alex Burrows, who factored in all three of the Canucks' goals and scored the game-winner 11 seconds into overtime. Burrows had allegedly bitten the finger of Patrice Bergeron in Game 1 and many believed he should have been suspended.
"Burrows is on the stage, he got a reprieve," Melrose said. "Maybe he should have been suspended. ... What he did is he got the last laugh. All the Bruins are mad at him ... this guy had a great game. He scored the winning goal. Every time he stepped on the ice he had somebody mad at him. He had the puck, he was setting guys up. Burrows did what he was supposed to do, but there are lots of Bruins right now that are passengers, they're not leaders in that dressing room."
