News conference scheduled for Sunday
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Pat Burns' future as coach of the New Jersey Devils was in doubt Saturday after the defending Stanley Cup champions were eliminated from the playoffs by the Philadelphia Flyers.
Just hours after New Jersey's 3-1 loss ended the best-of-seven series in five games, the Devils announced they would hold a news conference Sunday to discuss a non-hockey related issue involving Burns.
E.J. Hradek of ESPN The Magazine reports Burns has a "health-related" issue.
