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."

Etc.

• 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."
