Logan Couture doesn't have to look far to be reminded of the San Jose Sharks' playoff collapse against the Los Angeles Kings.
His surgically repaired right hand still has scars from last month's surgery, and the recovery has been slow. He expects the hand, injured in a fight with Kings centre Mike Richards, to be OK by training camp.
And Couture works out with Kings defenceman Drew Doughty, who was set to have his day with the Stanley Cup on Friday. Doughty doesn't chirp his good friend, but that doesn't stop Couture from thinking about the painful first-round series loss.
"I think every time I see hockey on TV or read about it in the paper," he said.
The Sharks were in command of the series, up three games to none. But they proceeded to become the just the fourth team in NHL history to blow that lead. The Kings won the Cup, and the Sharks were left to wonder what went wrong.
Couture doesn't ponder what he and his teammates could've done differently. The thoughts are more simple than that.
