The team needed a bounce back effort tonight, against the Buffalo Sabres. Once again, Burrows and co. were equal to the task. Alex Burrows is the Canucks Player of the Game:
TOI – 13:45, 1 G, 1 A, 3 SOG.
Burrows got into the action early. With his team trailing by a goal, number 14 took several swipes at a loose puck in front. Robin Lehner took exception and began mixing it up with Burrows once the play left the Buffalo zone. After the referee separated the two, Justin Falk came barrelling in to knock the Canucks player down:
Burrows added another assist on Michael Chaput‘s second goal of the night. That makes four points in the last two games for the 35-year-old. Harassing enemy goaltenders, drawing penalties, scoring goals — just another day at the office for Alex Burrows!
His current hot streak is fuelling speculation that he could be traded at the deadline. Burrows in on the last year of his contract.
