Don't tell Burns exhibition games don't count. The Wild scored three pretty goals Thursday in Detroit, but the prettiest went to Burns, who on a 2-on-1 blew by future Hall of Fame defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom before beating future Hall of Fame goalie Dominik Hasek.
"I said to Fozzie [Foster], 'I don't care if it's a preseason game; that's going in the memory bank,'" Burns said. "When you don't score a lot, you count them all."
The goal came after Eric Belanger motored by Niklas Kronwall and fed Burns with a perfect pass through the crease.
"I didn't even think he saw me, and then he puts it right on my tape," Burns said. "That goal was all Belanger."
James Sheppard, 19, was scratched after a line-change mishap resulted in a goal Thursday. Lemaire said, "In general, I was happy with his game. But ... it's like he doesn't glide. It's like he's got rust under his blades."
Defenseman Andre Lakos has a stress fracture in his vertebrae, an injury Lynn says "could respond within days, or it could be weeks."
