So it wasn’t bad enough the Bruins broke down with 19 seconds left in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals to lose 1-0 to the Vancouver Canucks?
Now they have to lose 3-2 to Alex Burrows, a Canuck who should have been Ca-knocked out of Game 2 for previously chewing on Patrice Bergeron’s finger?
Burrows (two goals, one assist) singlehandedly beat the Bruins – literally – in the overtime period when he trashed Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas to score 11 seconds into sudden death.
The Boston Globe alluded to the suspect nature of Burrows’ presence in the game in its initial web report, saying Burrows “avoided suspension for this game after being accused of biting Boston’s Patrice Bergeron in Game 1.”
The Boston Herald’s initial web report didn’t mention the dental incident, although several commenters did.
Whatever, it bites.
