San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - The San Jose Sharks will not have the
services of forward Adam Burish for the second round of the playoffs.
The Mercury-News reported on Thursday that the 30-year-old suffered an
undisclosed upper-body injury during the recently-completed first-round series
with the Vancouver Canucks.
Burish was on the receiving end of a slash from Canucks defenseman Alex Edler
late in the second period of Tuesday's clinching Game 4 on home ice, and did
not return to what eventually was a 4-3 overtime victory. He did not record a
point in the four-game sweep.
In addition, the paper reported that forward Martin Havlat, who has not played
since Game 1 of the set, skated on his own for the first time since suffering
an undisclosed ailment, but did not provide any timetable for a return to
