Burrows Hopes To Never Do It Again

Remember the stick Alex Burrows placed between the legs of Marc Staal Thursday night?  Well, Burrows admits he did it but won’t do it again…

“I thought we had good battles all night in front of the net and those things are going to happen. For sure, I’m aware of that [spear], but sometimes in the middle of a battle, you might do things you regret. But those are things I don’t do on a regular basis.

“Obviously, I did it and hopefully it won’t happen again.”

Oh yes, the league looked at the incident and decided not to do anything about it.

It was a damn dirty play.  Is that not still considered a “head” shot?

Classic. I wonder if he at least received a sternly worded letter.
