Burns on Fire
Standard Spin: It hasn't quite been the breakout season that fantasy hockey pool GMs were hoping for, but Brent Burns is currently enjoying the best scoring stretch of his entire career. On Friday the San Jose blueliner collected another 3 assists, and now has 8 helpers on a 4 game point scoring streak. It was his second 3A game in that span.
Other game notes: Dan Boyle (flu) played and scored his 5th goal of the season, while Justin Braun had his biggest game of the year with 1G and 1A. The Sharks' D was a clear edge in the team's 5-3 victory over the Hawks. (2/11/12)
