The Sharks were 31-14 in the first two periods and had a rookie goalie making his first NHL start, but led 1-0.
While Troy Grosenick was steady in net, weathering Canes offensive flurries, Tomas Hertl gave the Sharks the lead with 1:14 left in the first period.
With Canes defenseman Ron Hainsey caught pinching down into the offensive zone, the Sharks put together a two-on-one rush. Hertl's pass was blocked by Canes defenseman Andrej Sekera, but the puck bounced back to Hertl and he knocked it past goalie Anton Khudobin.
