Hertl's goal leads Sharks past Penguins 2-1

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Tomas Hertl scored a tiebreaking, power-play goal early in the third period and Aaron Dell made 31 saves to lead the San Jose Sharks to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.

Timo Meier also scored and Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns added two assists each to help the Sharks win for the fourth time in five games. Dell did the rest to improve to 8-0-1 in his last nine starts.

Conor Sheary scored the lone goal for the Penguins, who had won five of their previous six games.
