from Mark Emmons of Working the Corners,
(Brent) Burns said he has been paying close attention to the Wild, who are riding a five-game winning streak and could be the NHL’s hottest team right now. But while he has a lot of close friends in the organization, he made it clear that he’s not rooting for the Wild as a team.
“I’ve been watching how they’ve been doing, hoping that they would lose every game,” he continued. “You have to be competitive to reach this level and I’m a pretty intense guy. And when a team doesn’t want you, you sure don’t want them to go 82-0.”
And one more: “I have a lot of friends there and you want them to score six goals and lose.”
