Sharks fans leave hats on Brent Burns’ driveway after his 3-goal performance

- November 30th, 2013

Following his first career hat-trick Friday night, San Jose Shark Brent Burns told reporters “today was a little weird.”

The bearded defenceman-turned-forward was referring to the unusual circumstances of playing a Friday matinee game the day after scarfing down a massive Thanksgiving dinner. (Plus, Burns had just scored as many goals as San Jose’s opponent, the St. Louis Blues — an odd sight.)

The weirdness continued, albeit in a different sense, when Burns arrived home for the night.

On his driveway were a dozen hats dropped off by what one presumes were overjoyed Sharks fans who weren’t in attendance to see Burns’ career night.

That’s a creative spin on the at-the-rink tradition.

Who said California doesn’t care about their hockey?
