The game has been very physical, but this takes the cake!

Bergeron started waving his finger to officials to try to alert them of what happened, and Burrows ended up with a double minor for roughing -- which equals a 4-minute penalty. Bergeron received just a two-minute minor for roughing as well, though he didn't bite.

It's unclear if he'll be suspended or not, pending NHL review. Some say he should get the suspension, while others say it's the playoffs, so he should get off the hook. Clearly the Canucks are hungry, but come on now!
