San Jose winger Joonas Donskoi appeared to open the scoring just over a minute in, but his goal was overturned upon review. Nearly four minutes later, Timo Meier got the Sharks on the board with his second goal of the season. Danny O'Regan, who was called up from the San Jose Barracuda (AHL) Saturday morning, picked up his first NHL assist on Meier's tally.
Bruins forward Peter Cehlarik tied the game 6:17 into the first period with his first NHL goal, and Jake DeBrusk gave Boston a 2-1 lead with his goal 4:29 later. Danton Heinen doubled their lead with 5:51 remaining in regulation, burying David Pastrnak's backdoor pass.
The Sharks will try to get back in the win column host the division rival Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.
