Sharks lose Havlat to injury; Couture returns
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.

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.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
