Sharks start fast to stay alive, beat Golden Knights 5-2

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Tomas Hertl got San Jose off to the fast start that had been missing the past three games, Martin Jones came up with the big saves and the Sharks staved off elimination by beating the Vegas Golden Knights 5-2 in Game 5 of their first-round series Thursday night.

Hertl scored his first of two goals just 76 seconds into the game to give the Sharks their first lead since Game 1. Logan Couture, Barclay Goodrow and Joe Pavelski also scored to cut the Golden Knights' lead in the series to 3-2 heading into Game 6 in Vegas on Sunday night.

Jones made 30 saves after getting pulled in two of the past three games, including a brilliant pad save midway through the third period to rob Reilly Smith's attempt at the tying goal on a 2-on-1 after Vegas had cut it to 3-2 on Jonathan Marchessault's power-play goal.
