That sounds a bit worse than it is because of the Olympic break, but Burns still ended a 19-game goal scoring drought. Sharks coach Todd MacLellan recently demoted Burns to the third line and was encouraged by the marker. "He was in the right spot," MacLellan said. "He shot the puck. I thought he did some other things well within the game. Maybe the monkey is off of his back now, and he can get back to relaxing and playing the way he needs to."
