Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Scores big goal in win over Isles
Hertl scored his first goal of the year Tuesday against the Isles, tying the game late in the second period of what turned out to be a 3-2 win. He finished plus-2 with two shots on goal.
The Sharks had blown a 1-0 lead by allowing two second-period goals, but Hertl's tally with 1:57 remaining in that middle frame turned the momentum back the other way. He's off to a bit of a quiet start, having notched two points in four games, but Hertl's top-line assignment has included significant power-play time, and it's clear to any observer that he has the talent to capitalize in those situations even though he hasn't yet.
