Brent Burns makes Sharks history as another Dan Boyle record falls
Dan Boyle has had better weekends.
The recent retiree had one of his franchise records surpassed for the second time in less than 24 hours when Brent Burns registered an assist on Joe Pavelski's second-period goal for the San Jose Sharks against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.
Burns picked up his 270th point with the helper, moving past Boyle to become the Sharks' all-time leader in points by a defenseman.
Burns moved into sole possession of 11th place on the Sharks' all-time points list among all skaters. Ryan Clowe occupies 10th spot, one point ahead of Burns, and Marco Sturm ranks ninth with 273.
While Burns plays more like a forward than a defenseman these days, it's still an impressive accomplishment.
