Canucks and Beyond

NBC’s footage at the end of period one in the Boston/Vancouver game shows this scene between Patrice Bergeron and Alex Burrows.
Burrows gets a 4 minute roughing minor to open the second period. Everyone seems pretty sure that Burrows bites down on Bergeron, though is that 100% clear enough for suspension, do you think?
Something for the Canucks to be worried about anyway, as illustrated by this comment from Darren Pang, who remarks:
End I’d 1st period, Burrows appears to bite finger in scrum of Bergeron. Brendan Shanahan has history to look at. JRuutu got 2 games in 09
CBC video below (not very good, though) if you want a comparison.
(UPDATE: More NBC footage added at the bottom of post, discussing the situation)
