Video: Sharks’ Couture injured blocking a shot, but it’s not serious

Mar 25, 2014, 12:53 AM EDT

Logan Couture left Monday’s game against the Calgary Flames, made a brief comeback and then left again.

Couture was injured blocking a Mark Giordano slap shot in the first period against Calgary. He left the game and took one shift in the second period, before leaving again.

The good news: Sharks head coach Todd McLellan told reporters that the injury to Couture is not serious, however he may miss the next game, which is Tuesday in Edmonton, according to David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News.

The Sharks fell to the Flames by a final score of 2-1 in the shootout. Mike Cammalleri scored the winner in the skills competition.

However, with the single point, the Sharks clinched a playoff spot. They also lead the Anaheim Ducks for top spot in the Pacific Division by two points.

    Person A: excuse me, but who’s allowed the fewest ‘goals against’ thus far in the NHL ?

    Person B: well that would be them ‘glorious’ Kings of Los Angeles at a paltry 151 ! :)


    the bottom line is that losing to a team like the Flames is ‘not’ consistent with winning the WC championship … so though the Sharks are a ‘strong’ team no doubt, nothing they do from here on in will prevent the Kings and Hawks from making ‘acquaintances’ again come this May …

    G K G !

      Blohard: which team has scored the most goals in the NHL since the Olympic break? I’ll give you a hint, they’ve also beaten the Queens twice this year.

      Calgary isn’t a bad team anymore, they’re a young team learning how to win, as evidenced by there 44 one goal games this year. Essentially the Flames are what the Oilers keep claiming to be, an exciting young team who can play with anyone on any night. Give them 2 years and they’ll be fighting for the division crown.

    You mean the softies in Alberta that have played in a league leading 43 – 1 point games? Those softies?

    This should be a story about the Flames winning again and beating another top seeded team. It isn’t. It should be though. When the Flames beat Anaheim again tomorrow it will be about the w or some defenseman with a booboo.

      they’re essentially out of the playoffs, bud. time to talk about playoff teams. you had your 70-game season already. better luck next year.

    ibieiniid and myself rarely agree on things. This time he hit the nail on the head. You guys got your stories when you beat Edmonton 8-1. This game Calgary did indeed win. They won in a shootout though. That caused the Sharks to clinch a playoff spots. That is why this time, even though Calgary won, there is an article about the Sharks.

    Personally I though Calgary played a hell of a game. Especially in the 3rd period. All the blocked shots and saves were incredible. Even the Calgary commentators were getting excited. From a Sharks fan I congratulate you on the victory. Here is to hoping Calgary makes the playoffs next year!
