Brent Burns News
Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Brent Burns marked his 1,300th regular-season outing with an assist against Boston on Sunday and it took his point streak to five games. He combined with Martin Necas on the power play to set up Paul Stastny for the game-winning goal in a 4-1 victory. Burns will now look to post his longest point streak as a Carolina man against long-time rivals, the Kings on Tuesday. It's been a good debut campaign in Raleigh for the veteran defenseman, with him on eight goals and 34 points through 49 games. 15 of his points have come on the power play, and Burns has recorded 154 shots on goal with 28 hits and 58 blocks.
Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Brent Burns tallied two assists Friday in a 4-0 victory over the Florida Panthers. Burns added a shot on goal and blocked one shot in the Hurricanes win. The Barrie, Ontario, native has produced four assists in the last four contests. Burns seems to be the right fit in Carolina, as he averages 23:45 minutes of ice time per game. He will factor into the Hurricanes offensive charge all season, as he did in San Jose.
San Jose defenseman Brent Burns just does not score as many goals as he used to. Burns delivered one on Thursday as the Sharks outlasted the Philadelphia Flyers in overtime. The tally by the defenseman was just his third on the season in 32 games. Even with the goal, Burns is still just shooting at a rate of 3.5%. The defenseman has not shot this poorly since his final year in Minnesota (2010). Father Time may be soon catching up to the almost 37-year old blueliner but that shot is still fast. One has to think a few more goals and points are to come in 2022.
San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns had a rough night against Washington on Saturday night. Burns was on the ice for three of the four goals that the Capitals scored. From the other end of the ice, he fired three shots on goal in 25:50 of ice time. That led all skaters on Saturday night. San Jose, among their six defensemen blocked just one shot. None were by Burns who crucially missed the assignment on Sheary's second goal. It was just one of those rough nights. Period.
