Defenseman Dan Boyle scored a power-play goal at 2:38 in overtime to lift the Sharks to a 2-1 win over the Canucks on Thursday.

Canucks captain Henrik Sedin was in the penalty box for hooking.

Sharks rookie center Tomas Hertl, forced overtime when his 11th goal of the season tied the game at 1 at 18:55 of the third period.

The Sharks, after bolting out of the gate at 10-1-1 to start the season, are stumbling. In their past seven games, they’ve managed just one regulation win, going 2-1-4.

Center Henrik Sedin and Sharks center Joe Thornton each had an assist and are tied atop the NHL assist leaderboard with 18 each.

The shots wound up 35-30 in Vancouver’s favor Thursday.
