Today, the sad news was announced that a legend had passed. The world lost a great man in Pat Burns.
Never backing down from a fight, Burns battled cancer three times in the past six years.
Burns is the only coach to win the Adams Trophy as the NHL's top bench boss with three different teams -- Montreal in 1989, Toronto in 1993 and Boston in 1998. Burns also added the Stanley Cup to his impressive resume in 2003.
Recently overlooked by the Hockey Hall of Fame Selection Committee, Burns was a shoe-in for the Dirty Dangle Hoss Hall of Fame.
We'll miss you Pat.
