    SAN JOSE, Calif. Danny Salazar Jersey . -- The San Jose Sharks will begin the second round of the playoffs somewhat short-handed after losing forward Adam Burish to an undisclosed upper-body injury. Burish got hurt during the teams 4-3 overtime win over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night that wrapped up the first playoff sweep in franchise history. Burish did not return to that game after being slashed by Vancouvers Alexander Edler late in the second period. Burishs right hand was wrapped in the dressing room after the game. Despite being a fourth-line player who had just one goal and two assists, Burish made key contributions as one of the teams more physical players and as a reliable penalty killer. He played the third most minutes of any San Jose forward killing penalties in the regular season. "Its a tough loss," defenceman Dan Boyle said. "Hes one of those guys who doesnt necessarily end up on the score sheet but having played against him he gets under other guys skin. He certainly got under mine when he was in Chicago. You kind of need that going forward. When the top guys are thinking about certain players versus what they have to do on the ice, thats a bonus for us." Burish also brings a strong locker room presence based in part on his experience from winning the Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2010. Coach Todd McLellan expects Burish to maintain that role even as he is sidelined by the injury. "Were definitely going to miss him out there but I think hes a type of player that he will make sure that hes around and talk to players and keeping everybody focused in the right direction," forward Patrick Marleau said. "It will be great to have that part still. But on the ice being a penalty killer, faceoff guy. Its going to be an opportunity for other guys to step up and try to fill that void." The injury news was better on other fronts for the Sharks as forward Marty Havlat took part in a light skate for the first time since leaving Game 1 of the Vancouver series with an injury. Havlat said he has no timetable for a possible return but McLellan was encouraged by the progress he has made. The injury to Burish opens up a forward spot, putting more importance on Havlats possible return. "This is the time that we dream of, the playoffs," he said. "The situation is what it is. Im just trying to get back as soon as possible." Defenceman Jason Demers also skated as he tries to return from a lower-body injury that has caused him to miss the final four games of the regular season and all four playoff games. Scott Hannan, acquired at the trade deadline from Nashville, has filled in admirably in the playoffs, forming a physical defensive pairing with Brad Stuart. With the second round not starting until next week, Havlat and Demers have time to recover and possibly make it back into the lineup. The time off is also welcome for players who accumulated plenty of bumps and bruises during the regular season and first-round matchup with the Canucks. Only a handful of players even skated Thursday as McLellan wanted to give his regulars a couple of days to clear their minds before turning their focus to the next round. The full team will plan to practice the next three days, by which time the Sharks could know their opponent and schedule for the second round. "The coaches Im sure are going to do a great job," Hannan said. "We as players got to come in and bring it in practice. You got to keep your game at the highest level and treat it that way in practice when youre out there. Just play hard." McLellan has assigned one coach to prepare for each of the potential second-round opponents: Chicago, St. Louis, Los Angeles and Detroit. The players wont start looking at video until that is determined. The Sharks had a similar layoff three years ago when they had a seven-day break between beating Detroit in five games in the second round and the start of the conference finals against Chicago. San Jose was swept in that series. "We would whine if we only had one day," McLellan said. "Now when we have five, people are looking for reasons for why it might not work. Its our job to make it work. Its our job to get prepared and be ready to play. The only answer to that question will be after Game 1, 2 or 3." Yonder Alonso Jersey . A forerunning sled crashed into the worker Thursday at the Sanki Sliding Center. The unidentified worker broke both legs and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. . After Gasquet beat fifth-seeded Ivan Dodig of Croatia 7-5, 6-3, Tsonga followed up with a 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-2 win against sixth-seeded Edouard Roger-Vasselin in an all-French match. MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Jesse Ertz is exactly where he started last season for Kansas State.He hopes the similarities end there.The junior quarterback won a three-way competition for the starting job against No. 8 Stanford on Friday night, resuming the role he had for two plays last season. Ertz hurt his knee in the opener against South Dakota, then managed one more snap before his year was over.Hes in all reality just been more consistent than the other two, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said in making the announcement Monday. Thats extremely important to us.Ertz was considered the front-runner for the job, but the competition with Joe Hubener -- who was the starter most of last season -- and Alex Delton remained tight throughout fall camp.Snyder said that Ertz only pulled away from the other candidates in the last week.It really did go for an extended period of time, he said. It was one of those things, if you could envision it, one day you say, `This guy lit it up today, the next day it was somebody else, the next day it was somebody else. There was that inconsistency of who was day-in and day-out at the top of the list, based on his performance that day.Ertz may best fit the mold of Kansas State quarterbacks, too.The junior from Burlington, Iowa, was a prolific passer in high school who also has the ability to break down defenses with his feet. He may not have the flash of Ell Roberson or the power of Collin Klein, two other dual-threat quarterbacks who had great success at Kansas State, but he at least has enough shimmy to keep opposing coaches off kilter.Jesse has a huge upside because of his speed, his accuracy throwing. He obviously knows the offense extremely well at this time, Kansas State offensive coordinator Dana Dimel said. As you remembber the first game last year he was a starter, so you have a returning starter as far as knowledge goes, but you dont have a returning starter as far as experience goes. Manny Ramirez Jersey. His biggest attributes are his knowledge of the offense and his overall speed as a runner.He also has shown the kind of natural leadership the Wildcats lacked last season.He works really hard and hes competitive. Even in conditioning, he pushes everyone really hard, Kansas State wide receiver Byron Pringle said. He will run it and take the responsibility. If you are right, he will tell you that you are right.Hubener has the best arm of the three quarterbacks, but he was wildly inconsistent last season. He was even benched at one point and wide receiver Kody Cook took the snaps. Delton is the most intriguing of the three prospects if only because he is the least well-known of them. The redshirt freshman also hurt his knee and missed most of last season.While most pundits have pegged the Wildcats for the bottom half of the Big 12, there is a sense of optimism surrounding the program. They should have one of the leagues best defenses, and with improved quarterback play could have enough offense to keep them in most games.Facing the Cardinal on the road is certainly a daunting test right out of the blocks.I think theyre excited about it. Theyre anxious to play, Snyder said. Theyve gone through what most players consider a difficult period of time, going through two-a-day practices and meetings all day. its certainly demanding, and theyre anxious to do what they like to do and thats play on game day. I think the enthusiasm is good in that respect. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
