Hertl's hat trick guides Sharks to win

San Jose recorded a 5-2 home victory Tuesday night over Pittsburgh, its seventh straight triumph to improve to 28-13-7 on the season. The Sharks fell behind 1-0 in the first period, but scored the game's next four goals to take control. Marcus Sorensen evened it up at 1-1 with his ninth goal of the season off assists from Erik Karlsson and Brenden Dillon. Tomas Hertl scored later in the first off assists from Evander Kane and Dillon to give the hosts a 2-1 advantage through 20 minutes. Joe Thornton scored the lone goal of the second period as Joe Pavelski and Radim Simek each recorded an assist. Hertl scored his second goal a couple minutes into the third period off assists by Justin Braun and Kane. The Penguins managed to cut it back to 4-2 with 1:50 remaining, but in the final minute Hertl secured his hat trick to close it out off an assist by Kane. Martin Jones earned the win in net as he stopped 22 of 24 shots sent his way.

Coyotes blasted by Flames

Phoenix saw its three-game winning streak come to a close Sunday night with a 7-1 loss at the Flames. The Coyotes (20-22-3) trailed 4-0 before scoring their lone goal with 16 seconds left in the second period courtesy of Jordan Oesterle. Alex Goligoski and Derek Stepan assisted on the power play score. Calgary then proceeded to score three more goals in the third period. Adin Hill suffered the loss as he was shelled for seven goals on 26 shots.

NHL Betting Trends

San Jose

The Sharks are 6-1 in their last seven road games. San Jose is 5-2 in its last seven Wednesday games.


The Coyotes are 3-11 in their last 14 home games. Phoenix is 5-2 in its last seven Wednesday games. 


San Jose has been playing excellent hockey, but this is a tricky spot after putting so much energy into an impressive win last night over the Penguins. Phoenix should have No. 1 goalie Darcy Keumper back in net tonight and will be looking to rebound from its awful performance three nights ago. The Coyotes were playing well for the stretch prior to Sunday's embarrassment, so I'm banking on them ending San Jose's win streak tonight.
