Congratulations to Alex and Nancy burrows on the birth of their first child - a baby girl... Victoria Burrows.
Burrows figures the emotional rollercoaster of the Hawks series may have induced labour.
The night following Alex finishing off the Hawks, at 9:10 p.m., Burrows' wife Nancy gave birth to their first child at B.C. Women's hospital. Welcome Victoria Burrows, five pounds, to Canucks Nation.
“She's a small baby, very healthy, though, and they should be home on Saturday, so I'm really looking forward to it,” said Burrows before Thursday's Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal with Nashville.
“I'm pretty lucky, my wife is unbelievable,” said Burrows. “Obviously, I spent the day in the hospital and last night the baby was born, and I was able to spend a few hours there after the birth. It was a special moment, really magical. I'm really proud. My wife knew today was another big game for me and she understands and supports me.”
