Video- Haven’t Seen Much Of This From Alex Burrows Lately

via Chris Ryan of NJ.com,

Loss aside, the biggest moment of the night came in the second when Burrows went after Hall following a check by the Devils forward.

Hall delivered a big hit to Burrows along the left wall in the Senators' zone, and Burrows immediately began retaliate. He landed a cross check on Hall before being separated while the play ended. He then went after Hall again, taking him down to the ice while landing punches and a few knees to the head.

"I thought it was a clean hit," Hall told media after the game. "He was losing his mind and I think he kneed me in the back of the head at one point."

Burrows was hit with a second minor following the post-play altercation, and he went to the penalty box for four minutes for cross checking and roughing.

Watch the incident below...

Added to the post, Burrows waives his in-person hearing.

I’d love to be a fly on the wall for that hearing.

“Well, what was I supposed to do? NOT knee him in the head?”

It was nice back even just a few years ago when clean hits were left as clean hits and didn’t need unnecessary retaliation.

Well, it could easily be argued that Hall could’ve been called for charging, though that obviously doesn’t in any way excuse Burrows’ ridiculous attack on Hall.

I’d never seen a hockey player flail and kick their legs like a baby
to repeatedly knee an opponent on the ice in the back of the head.

Guess the first sighting might as well come from Alex Burrows.

Odd choice for Ottawa to actually re-sign him for multiple years after they acquired him.

I guess his special brand of leadership hasn’t quite put them over the top.
