(Video) Alex Burrows Hit on Ryan McDonagh

Relive Game 2 of the Bruins’ 2011 Stanley Cup Final Against the Canucks Thursday on NESN

Did Alexandre Burrows bite Patrice Bergeron during Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final? The referees then said no, but the Bruins — and the team’s fans — knew better. So when the B’s and Canucks  took the ice for Game 2, after Boston suffered a last-second defeat to Vancouver in the opening game, it quickly became clear that these two teams did not like each other.
