Playoff-bound Sharks snap skid with 5-4 win over Rangers

Brent Burns scored a power-play goal 3:10 into overtime and the San Jose Sharks snapped a six-game losing streak on the night they clinched a playoff berth, rallying past the New York Rangers 5-4 on Tuesday.

Chris Tierney tied the game with his second goal with 2:15 to play in regulation after San Jose had blown a 3-1 lead. Jannik Hansen added his first goal since joining the Sharks, and Melker Karlsson scored short-handed.

San Jose's postseason spot was secured midway through the game when Los Angeles lost at Edmonton.

The scuffling Rangers also wrapped up a trip to the playoffs, for the seventh year in a row, by earning one point. New York lost for the fourth time in five games.
