VANCOUVER -- After Wednesday night's 1-0 loss, Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron said that Vancouver Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows bit him during a dust up that happened along the end boards at the end of the first period.

"Oh yeah, he did," confirmed Bergeron when asked about the incident, postgame. "He cut me a little bit on my finger.

"I’m not gonna be here and complain about it, I’ll let the league do their job, but he sure did."

In his own postgame media press conference, Boston Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien said he hadn't yet seen the replay of the incident.

"I’m going by what Patrice told me and obviously there was something that happened. And I guess I’ll save my comments for after I see it. And if that’s the case then that’s a classless move and not something players should be doing at this level anyways," said Julien.

Bergeron talked about the on-ice officials' reaction.

"They didn’t see it," explained Bergeron. "But, you know, we were speaking French, me and him, and I [asked] him why did he do that? And that linesman speaks French and his explanation was that he said I put the finger in his mouth and he had to do it.

"So, I’ll leave it at that, but I’m sure the league’s going to look at it."
