Associated Press

SAN JOSE, California (AP) – Brent Burns scored his fourth game-winning goal, Martin Jones made 27 saves and the San Jose Sharks beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 on Saturday-evening.

The Sharks, who have the second best home record this season at 16-4-4, have won six consecutive games and are 8-1-0 in the last nine, together with a loss of five matches at home.

Joe Pavelski, Joe Thornton and Melker Karlsson also scored for San Jose. Jones has allowed two or fewer goals in four straight starts.

Ryan Dzingel scored the only goal for Ottawa, while Anders Nilsson, who gained 2 January in a trade with Vancouver, made his fifth consecutive start for the senators and 28 shots stopped.

Pavelski gave San Jose a 1-0 lead with 2:03 left in the second period, when he grabbed the feed from Tomas Hertl and drilled a rising top layer of the polshoot over Nilsson. It was Pavelski's 26th goal, which brought him 45 this season, which would make a career high.

Burns made it 2-0 at 6:17 of the third when he shot a wrist to the net that left Ottawa's Christian Jaros and past Nilsson.

Jones' bid for his 21st shutout career ended 27 seconds later when Dzingel took the no-look-backhand feed from Bobby Ryan and made a top position on the pulse.

Thornton pushed back the lead to two goals with 4:17 in the game, when he referred to a shot that started at the top from Burns and Timo Meier.

The empty goal of Karlsson with 1:21 left yielded the last margin.
