SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) San Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl will miss his second straight game in the Stanley Cup Final with a lower-body injury.

Coach Peter DeBoer said Hertl will not be ready to play Game 4 on Monday night and remains day to day. Hertl got hurt late in Game 2 in Pittsburgh and missed the following game in San Jose.

The Sharks overcame his absence with a 3-2 overtime win that cut Pittsburgh's series lead to 2-1. Melker Karlsson took Hertl's place on the top line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski and Dainius Zubrus returned to the lineup as a fourth-line forward.

Hertl has six goals and five assists in 20 playoff games this season.
