SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) After six straight losses, the San Jose Sharks were looking for any kind of win. A well-played game that featured a late comeback and dramatic winner only made them feel even better.
Brent Burns scored a power-play goal 3:10 into overtime and the Sharks snapped their longest skid in six years on the night they clinched a playoff berth, rallying past the New York Rangers 5-4 on Tuesday.
"I don't know if it's relief. It's a good win," captain Joe Pavelski said. "Sometimes you've just got to look and take a deep breath and reassess yourself. We kind of did that. We played a couple games on that six-game stretch where we weren't good."
