Regarding the Alex Burrows incident [VIDEO] with Patrice Bergeron last night, Burrows has already been in contact with MIke Murphy of the NHL and Pierre LeBrun is reporting this via Twitter:

Hearing no suspension for Burrows.

Update 11:36pm PT: via the NHL—

National Hockey League Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations Mike Murphy today announced that there will be no supplemental discipline on Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows.

“After reviewing the incident, including speaking with the on-ice officials, I can find no conclusive evidence that Alex Burrows intentionally bit the finger of Patrice Bergeron.”

P.S. If anyone’s interested, Chris Iorfida at CBC reports there’s apparently a good chunk of history in the NHL when it comes to biting allegations.
