San Jose head coach joined Scott Oake, Kelly Hrudey on Hockey Night in Canada

Brent Burns loves reptiles, his beard, playing hockey and joking around. 

And after an injury forced him to sit out his scheduled appearance on After Hours on Hockey Night in Canada Saturday, his San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan told Kelly Hrudey and Scott Oake how all those qualities helped combine to make Burns a "very coachable" player. 

Also, Hockey Night in Canada's P.J. Stock, Glenn Healy, Kevin Weekes, Elliotte Friedman and Ron MacLean recapped the Sharks' win over the Flames, and the rest of the action from around the NHL.
