STRICKEN

Former NHL coach Pat Burns is facing a third fight with cancer. The 56-year-old Burns told Montreal La Presse he has lung cancer. Burns had colon cancer in 2004 and liver cancer in 2005. He coached Montreal, Toronto, Boston and New Jersey, leading the Devils to the 2002-03 Stanley Cup title.

SPEAKING

“I know what you people are like in Montreal. You’re capable of dramatizing everything, if it suits you. The truth is simple: The cancer has returned. But never fear: I’m still alive. I’m not in great shape, but I wake up every morning, I play golf, I ride my motorcycle and I work, despite the illness.”— Former NHL coach Pat Burns after announcing he has lung cancer.
