Pat Burns at peace ...
Pat Burns' interview with Hockey Night in Canada is probably worth a view on a lazy Sunday afternoon. His is an unlikely story, from police officer to Stanley Cup-winning coach. As a coach, he came off the way fans hoped they would if they ever got to coach a NHL team: Nasty, a little dictatorial, but sharp-tongued.
Meantime, on the hockey front, there are some pointed words for Don Cherry after his editorial reply to Alex Ovechkin's "hot stick" 50th goal celebration. At least Cherry's first rant had a point; this was all over the place.
