Brent Burns is going to win the Norris Trophy for all the reasons Erik Karlsson should have

Point totals matter, unless you’re Erik Karlsson Erik Karlsson should have won the Norris Trophy last year as the NHL’s outstanding defenceman. I haven’t been particularly quiet on this issue. As I kept saying: Drew Doughty had a great season, but Karlsson had a once-in-a-generation offensive performance. This year, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that Brent Burns is going to run away with the Norris. He’s third in league scoring overall, and 12 points ahead of second-place among defencemen (excluding Thursday night’s games). That’s the biggest gap since 2013-14, when...

Bruins successfully limit Sharks’ Brent Burns on way to 4th straight win

The sample size is entirely too small to make any definitive statements one way or the other, but it’s obvious that the Bruins, despite the positive results of three wins in as many games, have been a little ‘too open’ in the defensive zone under interim head coach Bruce Cassidy. But the theme of the […]

Sharks fall to Bruins in overtime

Brad Marchand scored a breakaway goal 2:36 into overtime as the Boston Bruins beat the Sharks 2-1 Sunday night at SAP Center. Roughing penalties to San Jose’s Brenden Dillon and Boston’s Riley Nask at 17:05 helped to open the ice, and the hosts pounced with Patrick Marleau scoring his 21st goal of the season just 32 seconds later. Brent Burns delayed at the top of the right circle, and when the defenseman finally wristed a drive toward the net Boston defenseman Torey Krug stepped out and to deflect it right to an unmarked Marleau at the bottom of the left circle. Marleau punched home...

Quick Bite: Sharks finally solve Smith, beat Arizona 4-1

With the help of All-Universe D-man Brent Burns, the Sharks picked up a much needed win. The Sharks were able to exorcise the demons of Coyotes matchups past by jumping on the pesky Arizona club early in a 4-1 win, courtesy of strong goaltending from Aaron Dell and goals from Brent Burns, Melker Karlsson, and the always entertaining Micheal Haley. Arizona (20-30-7) has been one heck of a thorn in the Sharks’ (35-18-6) side during this 2016-17 campaign. Despite leading only the Colorado Avalanche in the cellar of the Western Conference, the Coyotes came into tonight’s tilt leading the...

Quick Bite: Sharks snap losing skid with win over Devils

San Jose comes from behind thanks to big game from Brent Burns A pair of goals by Brent Burns helped snap a four-game skid as the Sharks came from behind to top the New Jersey Devils 4-1 on Sunday afternoon. San Jose fell behind early despite leading heavily on the shot clock, but Burns scored back-to-back goals in the second period to give the Sharks a lead they did not surrender.
