Burns' OT goal leads Sharks past Coyotes 2-1

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Brent Burns scored a power-play goal 19 seconds into overtime and the San Jose Sharks wrapped up a successful homestand with a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.
 
Chris Tierney also scored and Martin Jones made 18 saves. San Jose won four of five games on the homestand and improved to 8-3 overall at the Shark Tank this season.
 
Max Domi scored the lone goal for the Coyotes, who lost their fifth straight in San Jose. Mike Smith made 40 saves but had no chance on Burns' one-timer in overtime.
 
Martin Hanzal was called for high-sticking Melker Karlsson with 0.3 seconds left in regulation and the Sharks did not take long to capitalize in the extra period.
 
San Jose set up quickly in the offensive zone and Joe Pavelski fed Burns at the top of the faceoff circle for the big shot that beat Smith for his ninth goal of the season.
