San Jose Sharks right winger Adam Burish has been out for the Western Conference semifinals with a broken hand, but it looks like he could be getting closer to returning to the ice and finding a way to make an impact and give the team a much needed boost in Game 6.
Sharks head coach Todd McLellan confirmed the news, via Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun:
Sharks head coach Todd McLellan says winger Adam Burish is “very close” and “may be an option” for Sunday’s Game 6.

It would be great for San Jose if they were able to get Burish back for Game 6.
He may not have been the most productive member of the team when he was available this season, but he is very experienced and that cannot be understated in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
San Jose is just one game away from being eliminated from the playoffs, so they will need to come out in full force when they take on the Los Angeles Kings this Sunday on NBC Sports Network.
