Stanley Cup winning Adam Burish gets the LOL award of the week for answering a fan about a lost game of NHL 11 via the Dallas Stars website.
(In case you missed the Burish Responds to a Fan\’s Feedback gem here it is:
“Here is an actual email received on Saturday, October 16th from a hockey fan…

Subject: #16 Adam BURISH
I was recently playing a game of EA Sports NHL 11. I was down by one goal against my friend, I was on a 2 on 0 and was impeded by #16 Adam Burish, and was unable to achieve a scoring opportunity, I ask that Adam Burish publicly apologizes to me for he had cost me that game of NHL 11. Thank you for you cooperation during this crisis.
Burish responded a la a video posted to the Stars website: “Sorry I ruined your game. You know what though, when your guys are that slow they get in my way. So whoever’s controlling them, I don’t know if it’s you or the computer, maybe you should have a talk with them. They’re just in my way. Their passes are in my skates. It was a mess out there. Get your guys going. Get your guys skating a little bit so they get outta my way. Sorry I ruined your game but talk to your guys next time.”
In an interview with David Amber on NHL on the Fly, Burish was asked about the humorous viral video and his experience with NHL 11. Apparently he’s not big video gamer.
He said: “I’m not much of a video game guy. I haven’t played it. But I think I gotta do it now…Maybe the video game makers gotta up our ante a little bit.”
I’d like an apology from Henrik Lundqvist for always allowing the game tying goal within the last 40 seconds of my online games, ruining my record.

I'm a recent college graduate looking for a dream job covering hockey. I've been watching the New York Rangers since my grade school days of VHS and Gordon Bombay's "ducks fly together" speech. While studying journalism at Boston University (COM '10), I wrote for the Daily Free Press, the student newspaper. I worked two summers at the Staten Island Advance, my hometown newspaper, writing city news and features. I've also written CD reviews for Music-Reviewer.com. One of my favorite gigs was interning for hockey analyst extraordinaire Stan Fischler covering the Boston Bruins and attending all their home games in the 2009-2010 season. (Yes, including the crushing defeat against the Flyers in the Eastern Conference playoffs.)
