Sharks' Burish cleared to play in Game 6

San Jose Sharks center Adam Burish will return to the lineup for Sunday's Game 6 of the team's Western Conference semifinal series with the Los Angeles Kings.

Burish, one of the Sharks' top penalty killers, has yet to participate in this series due to a broken right hand he sustained while blocking a shot in San Jose's Game 4 win over Vancouver in the opening round back on May 7.

The seven-year veteran is expected to center the fourth line for Sunday's matchup.

San Jose trails the best-of-seven set with the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings 3-2, but has yet to lose in four games at HP Pavilion this postseason.
