Brent Burns was in such good spirits after the San Jose Sharks' 2-1 win against the Montreal Canadiens on Friday that he decided to do his best imitation of a sportswriter.

After scoring his 10th goal of the season in San Jose's third straight victory, the charismatic Sharks defenseman crashed the postgame press scrum for assistant coach Steve Spott at SAP Center.

Burns made sure he wasn't just loitering at Spott's interview. He chimed in with an important question for the Sharks assistant coach before bolting for the team bus.

Unfortunately, Burns missed deadline, so he'll have to continue patrolling San Jose's blueline.
