SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Brent Burns started a four-goal, second-period outburst with a highlight-reel move and Matt Nieto scored a short-handed goal following a botched Toronto line change in the Sharks' 7-0 victory over the Maple Leafs on Saturday for San Jose's most lopsided shutout since 2001.

Tomas Hertl added two goals and Joe Pavelski, Melker Karlsson and Joonas Donskoi also scored to help the Sharks end a lackluster homestand on a bright note. San Jose went 2-3 during a two-week stretch at the Shark Tank and has the worst home record in the league at 6-12-0.

Martin Jones made 28 saves for his fourth shutout of the season and San Jose won its seventh straight against Toronto. The Sharks' last 7-0 win was over Chicago on Feb. 14, 2001.

Jonathan Bernier made 24 saves for the Maple Leafs and Toronto lost the final two games of its three-game California swing.
