VIDEO: Did Mikhail Grabovski bite Max Pacioretty?
Montreal's Max Pacioretty thinks Toronto's Mikhail Grabovski bit him.
As the Leafs where on the way to a 6-0 rout, tensions were high and we saw a number of fights, including one stretch were Toronto tough guy Colton Orr took a run at Tomas Plekanec and then one-punched Rene Bourque.
But perhaps the most bizarre incident came when Montreal's Max Pacioretty tried to tell the referees that Toronto's Mikhail Grabovski bit him during a skirmish along the boards.
Here's the inconclusive video. All you can really see is Pacioretty's arm over Grabovski's face. No idea what's happening under there.
If the NHL is able to conclude that Grabovski did in fact bite Pacioretty, Grabovski is probably facing a game or two suspension (at least based on past biting examples that were proven).
