Adam Burish (hand) isn't expected to play again during the regular season, but he could return during the playoffs.
He underwent surgery Wednesday to insert two pins in two fingers in his left hand after he blocked a shot against Edmonton on Tuesday. Burish missed the start of the 2013-14 campaign because of a procedure on his back, so he's been limited to just 15 games this year. Mar 27 - 5:38 PM

Sharks forward Adam Burish says his San Jose teammates are much more effective when there's some chatter and loose banter among the players before each game and between each period.

The Sharks were that way Sunday night, Burish said, before and during their 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings in their Western playoff series. The win evened the best-of-seven series at 3-3. The deciding game will take place Tuesday. "In the locker room before the game, there was some excitement. This team plays well when we're loose, when we're excited and having fun," Burish said. "It's not a tense group. This group's not good when we're tense and we're nervous." Burish said the team will "crack a joke here or there," but mainly the Sharks are talking about what their plan is for the night, to create discussion among the players instead of having everyone internalize their thoughts. "Silence sometimes can kill you," Burish said. "Silence in this locker room can make you nervous." Burish returned to the Sharks Sunday after sitting out since May 7 with a broken hand. He didn't score but he led his team in shots with four in 14 shifts.
