Brent Burns scored with 2:52 remaining to cap a rally from a late two-goal deficit, and the San Jose Sharks beat the Nashville Predators 5-4 on Tuesday night.

The Sharks cooled off the NHL’s hottest team, ending the Predators’ five-game winning streak.

Burns’ one-timer from the left faceoff circle beat Juuse Saros high to the glove side. Joe Pavelski tied it at 4 when he scored with 7:44 remaining after Brenden Dillon’s shorthanded goal narrowed Nashville’s lead to 4-3 with 8:20 left.
