SAN JOSE -- Alexander Barabanov scored 1:42 into overtime to give the San Jose Sharks a 2-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes at SAP Center on Monday.

Tomas Hertl set up Barabanov for the goal that ended the Hurricanes' four-game winning streak.

"It's one of those things where we just didn't get pucks through," Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "But we were trying to do the right thing. We gave them a few chances at the end."

Kevin Labanc also scored for San Jose (9-8-1), which had been held without a goal for 135:38. James Reimer made 22 saves.

"He's been solid for us all year," Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson said. "He's coming in with a great attitude. Even if one squeaks by him in doesn't really affect him. … That obviously gives the bench and the players on the ice a bit more confidence."

Antti Raanta made 25 saves for the Hurricanes (14-2-1), who are 8-1-1 on the road.

"Whenever I get the chance, I just want to get out there and give the team a chance to win," Raanta said. "But that's hockey. Sometimes bad bounces happen."

Tony DeAngelo put the Hurricanes ahead 1-0 at 1:16 of the second period. Sharks defenseman Mario Ferraro deflected the puck onto DeAngelo's stick, who scored on a slap shot.

"[The Sharks] blocked a lot," DeAngelo said. "A lot of times when teams do that it will hit somebody and right to one of our guys."

Labanc tied it 1-1 at 3:54 of the third period after Jasper Weatherby set him up for a wrist shot at the right face-off circle.

"With us being down 1-0 that was a big goal," Labanc said. "It's a big one for us against a great hockey team. … They're a good, hard defensive team. [We] just have to make sure we aren't turning pucks over because they feed off of those turnovers and then [the puck is] going back the other way."

Sharks coach Bob Boughner said, "We had some trouble in our own end at times, but we didn't panic. It's not always pretty, but it's two points."

NOTES: Karlsson played his 800th NHL game. … Three of Reimer's five wins this season have come in games with 2-1 scores and two of those games have gone to overtime. ... Seth Jarvis assisted on DeAngelo's goal, giving the rookie forward a four-game point streak (three goals, one assist).  … Jordan Staal played his 600th game for Carolina.
