Sharks vs. Flames Lines: Logan Couture back in lineup

New, comments

The 23-game nightmare is over.

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

After missing 23 games, Logan Couture is back in the Sharks lineup. Thank God. He'll slot right back on to the second line, with Nieto-Hertl-Wingels making up the third line. Zubrubs-Tierney-Donskoi will be the fourth line, which is a bit of a surprise. Tierney has been better than Mike Brown this season, but not so much so that I'd expect DeBoer to keep Brown's grit in the press box.
