Hertl completes hat trick, Sharks beat Caps 7-6 in overtime

WASHINGTON (AP) Logan Couture needed a new stick for overtime.

So convinced the San Jose Sharks were heading toward another loss, Couture went to the bench and broke his stick over the boards. Then he looked up and saw Evander Kane score the tying goal with one second left. Minutes later, Tomas Hertl completed his hat trick in overtime to beat the Washington Capitals 7-6 Tuesday night.

Hertl went hat trick-for-hat trick with Alex Ovechkin, scoring 1:48 into the extra period to snap the Sharks' losing streak at three and send them into a 10-day break on a high note.
