Sharks will put perfect record on the line

Two of the NHL’s three teams with perfect records face off today as the Sharks visit the St. Louis Blues.

San Jose has begun the season with five consecutive victories, four of which have come at home. The Sharks won each of their first four contests by at least three goals before posting a 3-2 triumph over the visiting Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Sharks rookie sensation Tomas Hertl, who leads the league in goals (seven) and was named the First Star of the Week on Monday, exited Saturday’s win with an apparent shoulder injury but is likely to play against the Blues.
