Hertl scores 7th goal, Burns gets game-winner to lead Sharks to 5th straight, 3-2 over Sens

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Rookie Tomas Hertl scored his league-leading seventh goal before leaving with an injury and Brent Burns got the tiebreaker in the third period to lead the San Jose Sharks to their fifth straight win to open the season, 3-2 over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

Patrick Marleau tied the game with a power-play goal late in the second period and Antti Niemi made 21 saves as the Sharks won a nail biter after outscoring the opposition by 16 goals in the first four games.

Zach Smith and Bobby Ryan scored for the Senators, and Robin Lehner made 47 saves in his first start of the season. Ottawa has lost three straight games after winning the first game on their season-opening six-game road trip.
