Alex Burrows "fell" into the St Louis bench last night. Yup, the dirtiest, most vile player in the NHL was "up to his old tricks again" and thank god the NHL media are here to call him out on it, or he might have gotten away this.

Nothing has ever happened like this before. Srsly.

Except this...

After all, there wasn't anything at all worthy of all this outrage than this ridiculous dive, right?

Isn't someone going to call for Burrows to be suspended here? Obvious, blatant and dirty headshot.
