The San Jose Sharks were without two of their key forwards, Logan Couture and Martin Havlat, due to injury during Game 3 of their Western Conference Semifinal series against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.
Couture was favoring his left leg as he skated to the bench following a collision midway through the second period. He went to the dressing room after playing 7:41, then returned late in the period.
Havlat did not return to the ice with the team for the start of the second period after playing 4:52 of the first. He had missed the first two games of the series, and the final three of the first round, with a lower-body injury.
The Sharks did not disclose the injury suffered by either player but said each was evaluated.
