Brent Burns Wins It In OT

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

Brent Burns was in the middle of his post-game interview after his team’s 3-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes when some music — inadvertently, presumably — began to blare inside the Sharks’ locker room.

“That explains my head on the breakaway right there,” Burns said Saturday night after the music was cut off, “a whole lot of (stuff) going on.”

Things cleared up in overtime.

Burns missed a chance to give the Sharks a two-goal lead early in the third period, as he was denied on a shorthanded breakaway attempt by Coyotes goalie Darcy Kuemper.

Burns, though, made no mistake on his next chance from in close. He took a pass from Tomas Hertl deep in the Coyotes’ zone, eluded a check from Richard Panik and beat Kuemper with a wrist shot to the glove side at 3:14 of overtime for his 10th goal of the season.

Without Erik Karlsson in the lineup for the fourth straight game, Burns, who also assisted on Kevin Labanc’s second period goal, finished with 29 minutes and 54 seconds of ice time.
