Sharks Cs Thornton, Couture remain sidelined by injuries

Labanc, Ward score early, Sharks beat Canucks 3-1

The San Jose Sharks looked as though they would cruise to the Pacific Division crown midway through last month but a few weeks later are barely holding on to third place with four games left.

The Sharks forward then made it 2-0 just under two minutes later when Marc-Edouard Vlasic's point shot hit Canucks defenceman Alexander Edler in front and bounced right to Hertl, who buried his second past a helpless Miller.

The 37-year-old managed to get to the San Jose bench under his own power, but couldn't put any weight on his left leg and had to be helped to the locker-room.

No updates on Joe Thornton's injured left leg were provided by the Sharks on Monday. Recently having become the 13th player in National Hockey League history to reach 1,000 career assists, Thornton has seven goals and 50 points this season.

With San Jose already missing Logan Couture after he took a puck to the face last weekend, Thornton crumpled to the ice with about three minutes left in the first when he ran into Vancouver forward Michael Chaput.

"It was a gutsy effort", DeBoer said.

"I think we're confident as a group". We're a team that's a sum of our parts, not about one or two guys. "I don't think it's a huge tear".

Chance says for every $100,000 donated to CPS, his fund will match it with $10,000 is matching for specific schools. He said, "We all know the IL education system is one of the most underfunded in the nation".

Patrick Marleau also scored into an empty net for the Sharks with 2.6 seconds remaining.

"You can't replace him, but obviously it's going to give other guys opportunities to step and step up and try and make a difference", Marleau said. Thornton has seven goals and 43 assists. He will get a chance to prove his worth on the top line with the Sedin twins.

"I asked him the symptoms that he had and his symptoms, the big swelling, the stiffness, to me, that leads right to MCL sprain", Roenick said. Forward Brock Boeser, a 2015 first-round pick, scored twice in four games since being signed and had a career-best five shots in Vancouver's 2-0 loss to Los Angeles on Friday. Thornton immediately dropped to the ice in pain.

"He plays through so much and plays so hard", Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said. It's definitely a little different scene, but we'll figure it out tomorrow and go from there.

"Lately, we haven't been good enough at home".

At the time of Thornton's injury, the Sharks were leading 2-0 on two goals by Hertl at the 11:00 and 12:51 marks, with his first goal snapping a 16-game goal drought.
