Alex Burrows of the Vancouver Canucks was caught biting the Bruins’ Patrice Bergeron at the end of the 1st period of last night’s game during a skirmish. Bergeron plead his case to the officials after the incident, showing them his scraped and bloody finger but no penalty was assessed. What should the NHL do about it?

“I don’t mind rough play and scrums at the end, as long as it’s just pushing and shoving and all that. But biting? I mean come on,” Bergeron said to reporters last night after the game.
Burrows was quick to deny Bergeron’s claims, saying “He had his finger in my mouth but I don’t think I bit him.
“You saw it, he put his hand up and he put his hand in my face and his finger got in my mouth, so that’s what happened.”
Despite Burrows’ arguments, this video shows he clearly clamped down on Bergeron’s finger:
