Adam Burish is expected to return to the Sharks lineup in Sunday’s win-or-go-home Game 6 vs. the Kings.
Burish was expected to be out for the entire series after injuring his hand blocking a shot in the final game of the first round series against the Canucks. Per David Pollak:
“The plan is I’m going to play,” Burish said in a Sunday morning scrum with reporters. “Unless something changes, unless I eat some bad chicken, I’ll be good to go.”
Burish is likely to jump in as the fourth line center with Bracken Kearns and Andrew Desjardins.
Burish went pointsless in the opening round against the Canucks, but with Martin Havlat and Raffi Torres still out and the failed Jason Demers-at-forward experiment in Game 5, the Sharks are still pleased to have Burish back among their active corps of forwards, as he strengthens the penalty kill.
