Hertl a 'bull' and a 'beast' in Sharks' Game 1 win

EDMONTON When Joe Thornton and Logan Couture got hurt in the final weeks of the regular season, the lights got immediately turned up on Tomas Hertl.For several seasons now, the Sharks have tried desperately to make Hertl a full-time center, with so-so results. That includes the 2015-16 season when he was in the middle of the third line until January. Coach Pete DeBoer then bumped him up to the top line with Thornton and Joe Pavelski, and he thrived. Hertl even started this season in that spot, too.

Sharks earn some much-needed good feelings in finale

There was little doubt that San Jose would begin next weeks Stanley Cup Playoffs on the road as the third seed in the Pacific Division, and that became official when the Oilers beat the awful Canucks.Still, there were some positive takeaways from their 3-1 win over Calgary in which they were still without the injured Joe Thornton and Logan Couture, as well as the apparently banged up Joe Pavelski, Joel Ward, Tomas Hertl and Justin Braun.
