The Blues are missing a large number of their forwards, but San Jose aren’t exactly injury free right now either. Erik Karlsson will miss tonight’s game, and Saturday night’s as well with a nagging lower body injury. He did not make the trip with the Sharks. Devan Dubnyk is also day to day, and defenseman Radim Simek is a recent addition to the IR.
That doesn’t make the Sharks any less bothersome for the Blues. Logan Couture, a noted thorn in the side of the Blues’ defense, is healthy and good to go. The Blues and their fans might be more than ready to play a different team, but hopefully they’re ready to stop Couture’s offense. He has six points and three goals in his last five games against the Blues, including a goal and two assists in the Blues’ January 8th victory.
