Burns scored a goal on five shots and added an assist with two PIM in a 5-4 win over the Blackhawks on Thursday.
That's back-to-back multi-point games for one of the NHL's elite rearguards. The 34-year-old, now in his 16th season, logged a game-high 27:24 minutes of ice time and continues to produce at the highest of levels. He scored 16 goals in 2018-19 and tallied a career-high 83 points to go with a plus-13 rating.
Burns has one goal and two points with a minus-2 rating and four shots on net in a 5-2 loss against the Predators on Tuesday.
Despite the defeat, Burns posted his first goal and first power-play point. He's been an animal with points on the man advantage in recent seasons, but the bad news is Burns is already off to a minus-5 rating. Since winning the Norris Trophy in 2016-17, Burns owns a minus-8 rating, including this season. He has one goal and three points in four games to begin 2019-20.
Burns produced an assist, four shots, two hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Burns impacted the scoresheet with the secondary helper on Marcus Sorensen's lone goal of the game. Burns has been steady in his career, producing at least 60 points and 105 blocked shots in each of his last five seasons. He's also added 300 or more shots on goal in four straight years -- making an impact for fantasy purposes even on the rare nights he doesn't record a point.
