Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ian MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun,
If anyone is emotionally and contextually ready to write some hurtin’ lyrics for country music, it’s Vancouver Canucks winger Alex Burrows. Alas, neither of his official languages has twang.
The 32-year-old from Quebec, where there are many cows but few cowboys, is hobbling under a 22-game goal-less slump that has gotten silly.
Burrows has no goals in 17 games this season, but at least has one save after guiding the puck off the Canucks’ goal-line to preserve Vancouver’s 3-2 win Sunday against the Carolina Hurricanes. His regular-season scoring famine extends to the final five games of last season.
In these 22 games, when Burrows has averaged 18 minutes a night and played largely on the first line beside former National Hockey League scoring champions Henrik and Daniel Sedin, the winger has fired 61 shots on target without scoring.
