There isn't one. Just circumstantial in the scrum.

I'm pretty sure Grabo bit him but there is no definitive evidence.

I don't condone what he did but MaxPac had no right putting a neck crank on Grabo when he was engaged with another player.

Bourque rips Orr's helmet off and gives him a jab to the face with his glove still on. What did you expect?

Although I'll admit Bourque should have expected something to go down with Orr, I still think Orr should have wrestled Bourque down too just like he had done to Gionta.
If you look at it Orr might not have seen both hands and could not tell if he had his gloves off or not??

When a guy like Orr is tied up with a player and has 1 glove already off, if you come up behind him and grab his face with your glove and tug his helmet off you have to know that he's coming up swinging.

Then Bourque too, he comes in and grabs Colton Orr who already has to flippers off and is poised to defend his actions? Orr was surrounded by red jerseys so he started swinging at them.

Montreal lost their composure and that's why the game got so chippy.
Like I said Prust had already started to let go of Komarov when Grabovski joined in. But let say you are right and Purst is indeed with Komarov...Grabovksi joining it...doesn't it makes 2 Leafs on 1 Habs? Wasn't Pacioretty justified to take Grabovski while Pacioretty HIMSELF was also grabbed from behind? And if Orr was so incredibly surrounded by Habs, which in fact was Gionta and Bourque...2 Habs...wouldn't Prust also be surrounded by Leafs?

No doubt Montreal lost their composure. Pacioretty did what players always do. Prust (who was a bit out of control tonight if you ask me) was going after Kumarov, Grabovsky went to defend his teamate so Pacioretty held him back. Guys facewash guys ALL the time. Phaneuf grabbed Gio by the face 3 times in front of the net. Doesn't mean you freaking bite the guy. It's just gross.

Having said that, they said they'd be more severe with the facewashing this year and so far they're not. They're calling ridiculous ghost penalties and letting guys get away with way too much after the whistles. Pacioretty's hand in my face like that would have infuriated me yes. But there is no way in hell I'd ever, ever BITE a guys hand. It's wrong on every level.

Hockey has separate rules than that from the real world. Any analogy made from actions taken in the game and real life is just dumb.

After all, by the same reasoning, I should be able to run headlong and completely deck a guy standing at a red light with a stiff shoulder check by the same reasoning.

Who cares who was the biggest cheap-shot artist. The Leafs were just far too good for the Habs tonight,

If it makes you feel better about tonight's game, go right ahead and retaliate against a toddler.

Doesn't exist. CBC showed the "elusive" front view, and all you can see is Pax mugging Grabo, and Grabo trying to pull his hand off his face.

Maybe he bit em, maybe he didn't. But you can't see for sure.

Agreed. I'm sure Orr didn't even know who it was. He just had someones hands in his face and he acted like he normally does when he throws a heavy counterpunch. Right hoook.

Lol? Welcome to hockey -- no free shots, no take backs, no good intentions assumed. Being a shrimp isn't a free pass.

No he didn't know. If he'd knew, he would have dropped it. Bourque had dropped those gloves before....he still remember how to do it. Bourque was going there to stop Orr from going with Gionta. Not to confront Orr himself. If Bourque knew, and knows that it's nutcase Orr, he would have punched Orr first.

I applaud Pacioretty. Ca you imagine what Mikhail Grabovski would have done to Prust had he let him go? Pacioretty selflessly put his own limb in harms way to potentially save a teammate. No police needed.

Talk about captain material.

go to the habs forum you'll see two angles as well as the bite marks on Pacorietty's arm. After seeing both video's and the bite marks on the arm, someone would have to be a massive idiot or a giant homer to suggest he didn't bite him.

If you were in a fight and someone stuck their hand in your mouth, what would you do? Suck on it? Or do something to get it out?

I'm not saying I approve of biting. Just asking what you would do? Serious question.
