The Sharks are already down two of their five leading scorers. They skated to a 5-2 win against the Dallas Stars on Sunday without Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl, although the latter participated in the morning skate. Now, they could also be without their leading scorer. Defenseman Brent Burns skated his final shift against Dallas early in the third period, and did not return. Head coach Peter DeBoer did not have an update on Burns' status, but told reporters after the game that it was related to the same ailment that caused Burns to leave practice early on Saturday.
