WASHINGTON (AP) Martin Jones stopped 24 shots, Brent Burns scored his fifth goal of the season and the San Jose Sharks beat Washington 3-0 on Tuesday night to end the Capitals' five-game winning streak.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Burns had second-period goals for the Sharks, who had lost three straight. It was Jones' 14th career shutout and the first of the season for the defending Western Conference champions, who scored only four goals during their three-game skid.

Joe Thornton added an empty-netter with 1:32 left.
