SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Brett Burns scored 22 seconds into overtime to lift the San Jose Sharks over the Carolina Hurricanes 5-4 on Thursday night.

Logan Couture scored on a power play three minutes earlier. Melker Karlsson also scored a short-handed goal and Joe Thornton had a power-play goal to move into 19th place on the career points list at 1,409.

The Hurricanes scored three times within 5:13 in the first period, eliciting scattered boos from the crowd. Aho scored twice, sandwiched around Rask's score.
