Philly using call-ups in goal
The deal is expected to be announced after Sunday's NHL All-Star Game.
Antero Niittymaki, who was recalled Tuesday from the AHL Phantoms, has had two good starts, but Burke is a three-time All-Star.
Niittymaki has stopped 39 of the 41 shots he has faced in his two wins combined, giving him a .951 save percentage, and he has a 1.01 goals-against average.
Burke has a 2.81 GAA and a .908 save percentage this season and a 2.97 and a .902 for his career.
