Coach Pete DeBoer has forced more off days into the schedule of workhorse blueliner Brent Burns.
"Your thought process has changed and now it's, you feel better, you feel great," said Burns, who is getting more accustomed to his days off. "You put the hard work in on your body, sometimes it's nice to let the body heal and allow it to put that work into practice almost. If you just workload and workload, it gets beat up. Some days it short-circuits. But I feel great." Burns is a top contender for the Norris Trophy this season. He leads all defensemen in scoring with 19 goals and 47 points in 46 games, while averaging 25 minutes per match. Jan 21 - 10:54 AM
