Sharks vs. Flames Preview: The return of Logan Couture?
Sharks look to end three-game losing streak.
The Sharks last win came against the Flames at home, so what better way to bust a three-game slide than against the worst team in the Pacific Division? While much of Calgary's problems come from garbage goaltending, the Flames have been poor in almost every facet of the game this year, taking a big step back from their PDO-fueled run a season ago.
Still, the Sharks haven't hardly with a full lineup all season and they won't against the Flames tonight. Logan Couture may make his triumphant return to the lineup, but with no Marc-Edouard Vlasic the Sharks remain short handed. Even short staffed, the Sharks should pretty easily handle the Flames, but...right, take nothing for granted.

Tommy Wingels and Tomas Hertl were benched against the Blackhawks and came back with a vengeance in a comfy win for the Sharks.
