Burrows pronounced himself fit to return to the lineup after a few days of treatment on his back.
"I needed a realignment kind of thing," he said. "The medical staff did a great job. I didn't think it was bad at first. But for a few days it was tough walking around and getting out of bed. Now it's nice to see it's a quick fix and back in the lineup."
Burrows hasn’t played since he was hit by Chris Stewart of St. Louis on Nov.4.
Visa issues could delay Ben Maxwell's arrival to Anaheim. The Ducks claimed Maxwell off waivers from Winnipeg on Thursday and coach Randy Carlyle indicated that they might not see him until after the weekend.
Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
