Tomas Hertl had two goals and Joonas Donskoi also scored to lead the San Jose Sharks to a 3-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.

Martin Jones stopped 24 shots to help the Sharks improve to 3-0 at home.

Scott Hartnell scored for the Blue Jackets, who lost for the second straight game. Sergei Bobrovsky finished with 26 saves.

Hartnell spoiled Jones' shutout bid with 2:50 remaining as the puck skipped off Jones' skate and onto Hartnell's stick and he put it in to make it 2-1.

Hertl added an empty net goal in the final second.
