SAN JOSE, Calif. - Rookie centre Tomas Hertl scored twice and the San Jose Sharks beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-0 in a preseason game Tuesday night.

Dan Boyle, Joe Thornton and Logan Couture also scored to keep the Sharks unbeaten in five games. Antti Niemi made 24 saves for the shutout.

Eddie Lack stopped 28 shots for the Canucks, who lost their second straight on the road.
