Since then, Burrows factored into all three Canucks' goals in a Vancouver win in Game 2, while players from both teams have waved their fingers at one another and stuck their fingers in one another's mouths, mocking the play on which Bergeron cut his finger and had to receive a tetanus shot.
Murphy said Tuesday that his intention is for such actions, for...
