Burrows scored a pair of third-period goals just 17 seconds apart Tuesday in a 4-1 win over Philadelphia.

An impressive effort from the veteran winger, who snapped a five-game scoreless skid. Nonetheless, at this stage of his career, Burrows is a modest contributor in terms of both points and PIM, restricting his fantasy value to deep leagues.

Coach Willie Desjardins confirmed that Burrows will be back in the lineup Tuesday against the Flyers, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.

The undisclosed ailment prevented Burrows from being an option for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, but he seems to be good to go after taking to the ice during Monday's practice. He skated alongside Brad Richardson and Chris Higgins at Tuesday's morning session.

Burrows (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 reports.

The Canucks will be getting a number of players back from injury Saturday, so Burrows' absence shouldn't be missed too much. It remains unclear what exactly is ailing him, but he should be viewed as day-to-day until the Canucks provide word otherwise.

Burrows (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.

Burrows wasn't present at Friday's practice, with coach Willie Desjardins suggesting the forward was receiving "more of a maintenance day." While that would usually indicate Burrows isn't dealing with an injury, Desjardins was somewhat evasive when asked if Burrows would play Saturday. The Canucks are expected to get two of their injured forwards in Brad Richardson and Chris Higgins back in the lineup against the Maple Leafs, so it wouldn't be surprising if Burrows sat out to further recuperate. It's possible he still might be hurting from the groin injury he returned from last week.

Burrows (groin) was a full participant at the Canucks' morning skate and looks in line to play Thursday against the Coyotes, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 reports.

Burrows resumed skating with the team Monday after first suffering the groin injury about two weeks ago. He skated as a member of the Canucks' second line and saw duty on the top power-play unit during Thursday's morning skate, a likely indicator that the team considers him fit to play. The winger has been about a half-point-per-game contributor when he's been healthy enough to suit up this season, notching 12 goals and 13 assists in 52 games.

Burrows (lower body) won't play Sunday against the Islanders.Burrows was scratched late before Friday's contest due to the lower-body injury, and it will cost him Sunday's game as well. The winger has tallied just 25 points in 52 games with season, and his absence will likely draw Zack Kassian into the lineup again Sunday.
