Couture has missed the past 16 games after undergoing surgery on his right hand on Jan. 8. He sustained the injury in a game against the Los Angeles Kings on Dec. 19, but played through it for nearly three weeks.
"I'm ready to go in three or four days, whatever it is. Feels good as its felt in three months," Couture told CSNBayArea.com on Sunday.
Couture ranks fourth on the Sharks with 35 points (14 goals, 21 assists) in 43 games.
It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
