The Sharks needed something to go their way Saturday night, and Timo Meier came through at just the right ... time.

Meier's one-timer on the power play at 1:07 in overtime lifted the Sharks to a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets (4-4-2) at SAP Center.

The win ended the Sharks' three-game losing streak and capped off a whirlwind day in which the team placed coach Bob Boughner and seven players into COVID-19 protocol shortly before the puck dropped.

The Sharks (5-3-0) held a 1-0 lead until late in the third period when Jets forward Kyle Connor tied the game with just over three minutes left in regulation.

A fourth straight loss would have been a bitter way for the Sharks to end the night, but Meier saved the day.

While Meier is one of the Sharks' best offensive players, it has been a while since he has scored a game-winning goal.

Meier leads the Sharks with five goals this season, and his latest is just what they needed.
