Rittich then raced to a loose puck, but fired it straight into Burns, who skated in by himself and slid it into the vacated net. That was the end of the night for Rittich after allowing two goals on six shots. It didn't start off any better for Smith, who was beaten by Hertl on a deflection 22 seconds after entering the game.

NOTES: Joe Thornton had an assist for his 1,000th point with the Sharks. With 1,047 career assists, he moved within two of Gordie Howe for ninth on the NHL list. ... Kane has nine goals and 13 points for San Jose against the Flames since a trade last February.
