Hertl scores OT winner, Sharks rally past Rangers
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Tomás Hertl scored 1:29 into overtime and the NHL-worst San Jose Sharks rallied past the New York Rangers 3-2 on Tuesday night for their first three-game winning streak of the season.
Panarin’s goal doubled New York’s lead 1:38 into the second period when he beat screened goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood over the right shoulder with a sharp wrist shot. Panarin, the leading scorer for the Metropolitan Division leaders, has points in 14 of his last 16 games.
Fox scored the only goal of the first, poking in a rebound off a wrist shot by Alexis Lafrenière that set off a scramble in front of the San Jose net.
Sturm took advantage of a misplay by the Rangers behind their own net, picking off a pass from Erik Gustafsson and banking the puck in off goalie Igor Shesterkin. Minutes later, Carpenter tipped in a shot from the point by Rutta to tie it 2-all.
The Sharks are unbeaten since captain Logan Couture returned from injury last Saturday. They lost 15 of the prior 16 games.
Blackwood made 29 saves in the win. Shesterkin stopped 19 shots.
Rangers: Host the Vegas Golden Knights on Friday.
Sharks: Host the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
