Burns scores 1st of season in Sharks' 4-1 win over Islanders

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Sharks coach Peter DeBoer wasn't overly concerned when his team struggled to get wins on an early road trip despite controlling play for much of the time. San Jose was able to put it all together on a two-game homestand that showed what this team could be capable of achieving this season.

Brent Burns scored San Jose's first goal from a defenseman this season and Logan Couture got his fourth in two games to lead the Sharks past the New York Islanders 4-1 on Saturday night.

The Sharks outscored Buffalo and New York 9-2 in winning both games at home after starting the season with just two wins in the first six games.
