Alex Burrows is expected to be back in the lineup on Saturday.
Burrows was scratched on Wednesday against the Rangers. "We just felt we wanted to get young legs," said coach Guy Boucher, who chose to play Nick Paul instead. "Back-to-back, on a road trip. He'll be back in next game for sure. That was just a plan I had in mind at the start of the season." Burrows hasn't earned a point in his past nine contests. Fri, Dec 15, 2017 09:48:00 AM

Burrows hasn't played well this season and it looks like it will finally cost him his spot in the lineup. The veteran has just three goals and three assists in 29 games this season. He hasn't scored in 15 games and he has just one point during that stretch. Nick Paul will take his spot in the lineup.

Alex Burrows recorded his 400th career point on Saturday.

Burrows netted a goal at 7:12 in the second period against Vegas. However, the Golden Knights went on to earn a 5-4 victory, making Burrows' accomplishment hard for him to celebrate. "Doesn’t really matter if I get on the scoresheet or not," said Burrows. "As long as the team is successful, that’s what really matters to me. Even (though) I scored tonight, I don’t care. We lost. It’s not a good feeling right now." He reached the 400-point milestone in his 856th career game.
