Via Puck Drunk Love:

It's no secret that the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens do not get along. It's also no secret that teams get chippy during one-sided blowouts, as the game between the two teams on Saturday night demonstrated in clear fashion. In a melee along the boards at about 11:30 into the third period, Max Pacioretty decided to put Mikhail Grabovski into a headlock. Fair enough. That happens all of the time in fights. However, the headlock happened to involve Pacioretty's ungloved hand and forearm being draped right in front of Grabovski's mouth.

Obviously, if you're silly enough to put bare skin practically into someone's mouth during a scrum, then you're inviting someone to -- on purpose or not -- take a taste. It's not clear from the video that Grabovski did in fact chomp down, but Pacioretty's making that face for a reason.

First, biting is gross. Second, don't put body parts inside of someone's mouth and not expect this to happen. There's not really conclusive proof, so I'd be surprised if discipline czar Brendan Shanahan doles out punishment. As it stands, it's just another embarrassing aspect of a terrible loss by Montreal.

No discipline for Mikhail Grabovski after biting incident

The NHL has an interesting policy on wanting to know when things happened - you know, when evidence is present. An ejection from the game for a major match penalty? Nah. You don't need evidence at that moment... maybe the next day when you decide if you should rescind a penalty. Do you need evidence to know if a disallowed goal is a mistake? No. A high stick or a kicked in puck...
