Status of top-line left wing unknown for Game 4 against Penguins @NHLdotcom

San Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl remains day-to-day with a lower-body injury, coach Peter DeBoer said Sunday.

Hertl, a first-line left wing, did not play in the Sharks' 3-2 overtime win against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday.

The Penguins lead the best-of-7 series 2-1. Game 4 is at SAP Center on Monday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).

Hertl, who has six goals and five assists in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, was replaced by Dainius Zubrus in Game 3. Zubrus, a healthy scratch in Game 2, took Melker Karlsson's position on the Sharks fourth line, and Karlsson moved to the first line to take Hertl's spot with center Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski.

The Sharks did not skate Sunday.
