Alex Burrows respects league's decision

By Scott Burnside

Alex Burrows had a couple of hectic days as he waited out a call from the acting lord of discipline for the final series, Mike Murphy, to see whether he would be suspended for biting Patrice Bergeron's finger in Game 1.

"It's the Stanley Cup finals right now. I've been working all my life to be in this position. Obviously with the last incident, league's made a decision. I've moved on. Now I'm focusing on a big game tomorrow night," Burrows said Friday.

"That's what we've been doing all year: taking it one game at a time. Now, we're getting ready. I'm really excited about tomorrow night's game," Burrows said.

As for the call with Murphy, Burrows said he wasn't too nervous.

"Well, I've had a few calls with the league in the years. They've always been great. I really respect those people. They have a tough job. They have tough decisions to make. At the end of the day, he did a good job. I respect his decision. He was great. That's all I can say about it," Burrows said.
