What if he didn't bite?

But he's being grabbed from behind. He tried to rip Pacioretty's hand off his face with his own hand right after the apparent "bite". He also fell to the ice due to it, so clearly, he did try doing other things. I'm of the opinion that it's more likely that Pacioretty's pressure on Grabovski's teeth caused the mark, not any biting action

But beyond everything, the fact is biting in that situation, if it did happen, would be a natural reaction. I don't blame Grabovski for it at all, just like I didn't blame Burrows for biting Ference when Ference shoved his finger down Burrows throat.
