Sharks pummel Penguins 4-0; Kane causes fracas in 3rd period

PITTSBURGH (AP) Evander Kane couldn't help himself. Skating near the Pittsburgh Penguins bench late in the third period Thursday, the San Jose Sharks forward took a peek at Pittsburgh's whiteboard, which may - or may not - have written down the time it planned on pulling goaltender Casey DeSmith in an effort to get back into the game.

"I like to think a little bit of a savvy veteran thing to do, right?" Kane said. "If you can see it, why wouldn't you look at it?"

Even if it was hardly necessary. Not with the Sharks well on their way to a dominant 4-0 victory behind two goals from Tomas Hertl and a short-handed marker by Kane in the first 14 minutes.
