Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl leaves with injury

SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks rookie forward Tomas Hertl scored his NHL-leading seventh goal of the season 55 seconds into the game Saturday night against Ottawa, but he was injured with just over two minutes left in the second period in a collision with Clarke MacArthur and immediately left the ice.

Hertl was bent over with his head down, battling for a puck, when he and MacArthur collided. He was still being evaluated by the medical staff when the third period began and his return was called questionable.

Hertil was hit in the head by Alex Edler during San Jose's 4-1 victory against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. The NHL suspended Edler for three games for the hit.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
