He is the fifth player to score 50 goals in a season with the Sting.
"It means a lot. I'm in pretty good company up there," said Burke. "it's an awesome accomplishment. I've got to thank my teammates for that. I couldn't have done it without them."
The Sting went up 3-1 in the second period after Luca Del Bel Belluz and Cooper Way score just 1:27 apart.
A fourth goal was waved off for goalie interference with two minutes left in the period.
Marcus Limpar-Lantz scored the winning goal at 2:31 in the third period, snapping a 3-3 tie.
