12 jerseys stolen from Burns’ widow returned (AP)

Twelve of about 30 autographed NHL jerseys stolen from Pat Burns' widow within hours of his funeral have been returned to the family. Montreal police said Thursday that the sweaters were found by agents from a security company and given to a journalist, who returned the jerseys -- destined for a charity auction -- to the late NHL coach's family.

Bear with us…

I’d love to talk about consecutive overtime wins and the first game at The Rock in nearly three weeks, but I got nothin’. For it’s December, and December means too much work for too little pay, and finals, and final projects, and things of this nature.

I don’t want to speak for Joe or Steve, as I don’t know their situations, but I expect to be back to posting on a semi-regular basis sometime next week. Sadly, this means no LiveCaps for the up-coming three game homestand, at least on my end.

I DO know that you can expect a three-weeks-in-the-making Scott Mackie post-game rant tomorrow evening, hopefully after a fun-filled night of the Devils having their way with Sidney and Evgeni.

I can dream, can’t I?

And now, it’s back to work for me – anyone wanna write a paper about famed 50s journalist Edward R. Murrow? Anyone…? Bueller…?

Rats.
