11:55 AM ET 02.11 | Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski will face an NHL disciplinary hearing for allegedly biting Habs forward Max Pacioretty on Saturday night. The incident occurred during a scrum in the third period when Pacioretty grabbed Grabovski from behind. There is a nasty history between Grabovski and several players on the Canadiens and the anger boiled over during a 6-0 rout of the Habs in Montreal. The NHL has shown in the past it is reluctant to prosecute these biting incidents without clear evidence a bite actually occurred.

Toronto's calling in Dr. Recchi to provide forensic analysis to discredit Patches. Recchi knows all about finger biting, if we recall the finals vs the Canucks.

The league might require dental records be on file in the future.

The Butt-plug is talking with Lawrence Olivier.

They can always get Dr. Fartsmell if they need a second opinion.

Was easily the most satisfying victory of my life vs. the Habs. Couldn't have drawn up a script any better.

Blowout win in Montreal's barn? Check.

Shutout? Check.

Embarass them physically in front of own fans? Check.

I am waiting for another nauseating pre-game ceremony at the Bell Centre, but this time instead of wheeling out the mummified remains of the Rocket or Dick Irvin, they trot out a suited-up John Ferguson to even the score!

Still love two lasting images - one of Rene Bourque's face after being popped in the neck by a Colton Orr love tap. Secondly, McLaren laughing at poor Josh Gorges (in front of his own fans) while manhandling him.

Na-na-na-na.... na-na-na-na... hey eh eh - never mind.

Grabovski's from Belarus and was born in Germany.

I wish Grab-an-armski hated other teams the same way he hates the Habs - he'd be a 1st Team all-star. Always plays with extra mustard against the Blanc, Bleu et Rouge.

Pacioretty is saying he got a tetanus shot. This is a joke.

Considering all the nose picking and wiping during a game I don't blame him.

But how do you really feel? :)

There's no evidence..he'll get away with it.

They can always get the dentist from Seinfeld to look at it after he looks at Kramer's bite mark to see if Jon Voigt owned that car.
