07:33 AM ET 11.21 | He's back? Brent Burns could be back in the lineup Thursday night when the Sharks open a season-long, five-game homestand against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Or not. "I have to talk to the staff first and find out," coach Todd McLellan said after a Wednesday morning practice that saw Burns skate in his usual spot alongside Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl. "There'll be two decisions based on when he'll play -- the medical part, but also the timing and conditioning part." McLellan said Burns has gotten good news on the medical front. "I can tell you that he visited a doctor or two, and he got a really good report, so he's real close. Now it's conditioning and timing," the coach said. "But he looks good, he worked real hard while he's been off, so he's close."

So if he's not in the lineup it was because he was halffast.
