DETROIT – David Quinn wanted consistent second and third efforts from the San Jose Sharks after a 6-5 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday.

“There’s a lot of great effort out there but everybody gives effort. You got to give a second and third effort,” he said.

He got it, especially on Tomas Hertl’s two 6-on-5 goals that tied the game late on Tuesday against the New York Islanders.

“Those guys did a hell of a job on the 6-on-5,” he said. “Both times, the puck retrievals, the staying with it, not getting cute.”

Hertl, William Eklund, Alexander Barabanov, Fabian Zetterlund, Anthony Duclair, and Fabian Zetterlund were on the ice for both 6-on-5 goals, with 3:11 and 1:30 left.

Those second and third efforts from Eklund and Zetterlund, in particular, led to the near-minute of possession that resulted in the game-tying goal.
