After his hit on top Ranger defenseman Ryan McDonagh earned him a major penalty and game misconduct for elbowing this week, Canucks winger Alex Burrows said he had heard nothing regarding a possible suspension from the National Hockey League.
But he's heard plenty on Twitter. "There must have been 500 messages for me from Ranger fans," Burrows said. "'I'll kill your family, I want you to die.' Bad things. A lot of people were upset with me." So why read them? "I thought it was a little bit entertaining, too," Burrows said. "It's a way for people to communicate nowadays, but it is scary. I'm a little worried about my kids." Canucks goalie Eddie Lack, overhearing the conversation, said: "Twitter sucks, man."
