Defenseman Matt Irwin scored in his third consecutive game on Monday in a 5-3 loss to Anaheim.
Irwin's outstanding offensive contribution has led to the Sharks being able to play Brent Burns as a forward. He now has five goals and eight points in 19 games and is on a four game point streak. He is also seeing plenty of time on the power play and would make an excellent pickup if you are looking for a scoring defenseman. Patrick Marleau and Jason Demers also scored.
