For Sharks’ Scott Hannan it’s all about the melodies of Brent Burns

Following the Sharks morning skate at Staples Center in advance of tonight’s Game 7, MayorsManor spent a few minutes with Sharks defenseman Scott Hannan.  Here’s what he had to share…

On if he has played in any memorable Game 7s:

“I haven’t actually been in one, except in my head. Everybody, you think about playoffs, you think about game, just like go-to games, and everything in the playoffs are just so exiting. Every shift becomes so important, every play becomes so important. It’s exciting, it’s when you want to be out there.”

On when he thinks of Game 7 in his head:

“All the time, you’re always thinking of it as you get older and you think when your younger that you’re always going to be there. I think you learn to appreciate it more. You don’t always get the chance and don’t always have teams that do well in the playoffs. So, obviously it’s exciting and you want to be able to give it your all.”

On Game 7 being all or nothing:

“I think we we’re in the same situation last game. We didn’t have any more mulligans, and we play like that. It comes down to playing every shift and playing everything you can, you look at the big picture sometimes and just look at what you can take care of on the ice in every shift.”

On if there is a difference in pressure playing away compared to being at home:

“Pressure is what you make of it yourself. If you come out there and your prepared for the game, over the course how you practice and how you take care of yourself. Everything else takes care of itself. You know, sometimes to just get out there and just play and try to shut out everything else and worry about what you do out there on the ice.”

On what helps him stay grounded:

“Burnsie (Brent Burns), when he plays guitar on the off days, I love it. He wheels around the room in his little chair, playing guitar and singing to the boys.” [MM: "And singing?"]… “Every once in awhile, you know, when he knows the words.” [MM: "What's his best tune?"]… “That’s the problem. I don’t know too many. It’s good, I like just the melodies.”

Bonus quotes from Dan Boyle:

Boyle On Brent Burns playing guitar:

“He and Burish (Adam Burish) can play. They play pretty good and I like it….I don’t know what it was they we’re playing but it sounded good.”

Boyle on if there is any different pressure playing Game 6 at home vs Game 7 away:

“You know, you’re playing for your life. You’re not going to have the energy of the crowd behind you this time around. At the end of the day, you rely on the guys in this locker room. You just go out there and give everything you got and hopefully you’re on the right side of it at the end.”
