DENVER (AP) - Brent Burns broke a tie with 1:39 left to help the San Jose Sharks beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Sunday.

Burns made it 3-2 when he came down the right boards and sent a snap shot through traffic and past goalie Semyon Varlamov. The goal was upheld under review.

Burns also had a short-handed goal in the second period, Joe Pavelski and Joel Ward added goals, and Martin Jones stopped 23 shots. The Sharks won for the second time in seven games to improve to 6-5-0.

Pavelski had an empty-net goal 19 seconds after Burns' second goal, and Colorado made it a one-goal game on Dennis Everberg's shot with 1:05 left. The Avalanche pulled Varlamov for the final 1:05 seconds, but couldn't get the equalizer.

Jarome Iginla and Francios Beauchemin also scored for Colorado. The Avalache are 1-4-1 at home and 3-7-1 overall.
