Burns out for opener
By Victoria Matiash
The San Jose Sharks will have to make do without defenseman Brent Burns for their first game of the season. Maybe more.
"I don't have an idea on timeline (on Burns), I really don't," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said after Friday's skate. "I think we'll see him skating quite quickly, and then we've just got to get him up to speed. It'll be a day-to-day thing for a while."
Rookie Matt Irwin is expected to be paired with veteran D-man Dan Boyle while Burns remains out.
