Video: Sharks pound Blues as Burns records first hat trick

Nov 29, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

The San Jose Sharks ended a St. Louis Blues’ winning streak for the second time this season, topping them 6-3 on Friday.

The Sharks have outscored the Blues 12-5 in the Western powerhouses’ two matchups. The Blues came into today’s game with a five-game winning streak and had won four in a row before San Jose beat them 6-2 on Oct. 15.

Brent Burns stole the headlines today, collecting his first career hat trick plus an assist. Here are his three goals in a steady stream of videos:

He wasn’t the only Sharks forward to have a nice day, as Joe Thornton scored a goal and nabbed two assists and Logan Couture had three helpers while Tomas Hertl (one goal, one assist) and Joe Pavelski (two assists) enjoyed two-point outputs.

It’s wise not to overreact to two games, but these contests might be worth noting if the two teams meet in the playoffs. Their last regular season meeting comes in St. Louis on Dec. 17.

    The sharks dominated the first period and then let up until half way through the 3rd. They have to play a whole 60 minute game! Good win and hard game played by the Blues.

    Great game by two of the top teams in the West. Great game especially by Burns.

    I know the Sharks are always regular season powerhouses and playoff-chokers, but this is their best team by far from top to bottom probably ever. Incredible death at center (Joe Pavelski as a 3C) and great defense, and although he’s struggled this season I think Niemi is a top 6 goalie at his best. A very healthy and impressive mix of veterans and youngsters make for a balanced squad as well. I see them in the Finals this year.
