After rattling off three wins to begin a six-game road trip, the San Jose Sharks have gotten off track lately.
They were shut out by the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday and then fell to a slightly banged-up St. Louis Blues by a score of 3-2 on Thursday.
Speaking of injuries, the Sharks have a situation to monitor now, as Tomas Hertl was injured and did not return to tonight’s game.
Jaden Schwartz made life difficult at times for the Sharks with two goals:
Assuming that Hertl isn’t dealing with anything too serious – CSN Bay Area’s Kevin Kurz reports that there was no update after the game – then it’s not all doom and gloom for San Jose.
The Sharks wrap up this road run against the Coyotes in Arizona on Saturday. After that, they’ll play five straight and seven of eight at home.
