Sharks advance to Stanley Cup Finals with 5-2 win over Blues

The Sharks are going to finish their silver anniversary season chasing that big silver chalice. Joel Ward scored two goals and Martin Jones stopped 24 of 26 shots as the Sharks eliminated the St. Louis Blues with a 5-2 win in Game 6 on Wednesday at SAP Center. By virtue of winning the Western Conference title, the Sharks advance to their first appearance in the NHL’s ultimate series. Ward scored his second goal of the game and sixth of the playoff series at 3:01 of the third period by deflecting a Logan Couture feed past Blues goalie Brian Elliott. Rookie left wing Joonas Donskoi iced...

Sharks vs. Blues: What San Jose must improve on in game two

The Sharks played well on Sunday, but here's where they can pick things up. San Jose lost game one of the Western Conference Finals, just like they did in the last three WCF game ones they played in. I already wrote about why the Sharks should feel good about their effort despite the result, so let's dive into the areas the Sharks need to be better if they want to win this series. The Sharks need more from Logan Couture After thoroughly dominating the Nashville Predators in the second round of the playoffs, Couture played below his high standards in game one. At even strength he finished...

Logan Couture puts the Sharks up 3-0 in game seven against the Predators

San Jose is firing on all cylinders. The Sharks failed to score on their second power play of the night, but Logan Couture quickly wiped any memory of that failure from the SAP Center crowd shortly thereafter. Couture put San Jose up 3-0 just two minutes into the second period, absolutely taking the wind out of the sails of the Nashville Predators. Couture's goal went unassisted and is his seventh tally of the postseason. He now sits tied for third in the postseason with Vladimir Tarasenko. It's also worth noting that Joe Pavelski, after his game-opening tally, is tied for first with...

Jimmy Fallon refers to Logan Couture as "Croatian Tom Cruise"

I...so that's a compliment right? On Fallon Tonight, which apparently runs at some point tonight on NBC, had some fun at the expense at a pair of San Jose Sharks. Fallon goes after both Joe Thornton and Logan Couture, somehow letting Patrick Marleau's gorgeous eyebrows sneak under the radar. The late night host refers to Joe Thornton as "most likely to be a puppeteer at a local library," which... Shit. Okay, so fair enough. Anyway he then refers to Logan Couture as...well, see for yourself. Jimmy handed out some very rare awards to a few NHL players! #FallonTonight ...

Sharks vs. Predators Game 6: Sharks fail to clinch series, fall in overtime

San Jose will play its first elimination game of the 2016 playoffs on Thursday night. This one's going to a Game 7. The Sharks held 2–0 and 3–2 leads on Monday night but couldn't finish off the Predators, dropping Game 6 on the road in overtime and setting up a winner-take-all matchup on Thursday in San Jose. Logan Couture scored what looked like it might be the game-winning goal when, with the score tied 2–2 in the third, a penalty to Miika Salomaki for high-sticking Martin Jones gave the Sharks their first power play of the game. Couture blasted the go-ahead goal past Pekka Rinne,...

Sharks' record with Logan Couture has Stanley Cup feel

Center Logan Couture really is a difference-maker in San Jose Sharks' lineup.

Sharks-Predators is now a best-of-3 series

Despite playing into the wee hours Friday morning, the Sharks didn’t get what they wanted in Nashville — a Game 4 win that would have given them a 3-1 series lead. Teams that have taken a 3-2 series lead have advanced in the Stanley Cup playoffs 78 percent of the time (283-80). “(It’s) a best-of-three now, and we’ve got two at home,” Sharks forward Logan Couture said after Thursday’s 4-3 triple-overtime loss. The Predators will go into Game 5 on an emotional high, having evened the series on Mike Fisher’s goal at 1:03 a.m. CDT. “We don’t need to draw on...
