NHL playoffs 2019: Sharks’ Logan Couture says ‘I thought I lost my testicle’ after block

first_imgNHL playoff hockey is synonymous with sacrifice. Players are expected to do whatever it takes to help their team. And Sharks forward Logan Couture did just that Friday against the Golden Knights when he went low to block a shot and the puck hit him in a … very sensitive area.The play came with 11:48 remaining in the second period. With Vegas ahead 4-3, Golden Knights forward Cody Eakin fired a shot on goal. Couture went low to block the shot, and fortunately for Couture, was not seriously injured. He left the game but returned for the start of the third period. Vegas won 5-3 to tie the Western Conference first-round series at 1-1. Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is set for 10 p.m. ET Sunday in Las Vegas. “I thought I lost my testicle,” Couture told reporters after the game.Couture’s night was memorable, even before his block that undoubtedly will become part of NHL playoff hockey lore. He scored San Jose’s first goal, setting off a three-goal run in the final three minutes of the first period that erased Vegas’ 3-0 lead. Then, less than a minute into the second period, he was called for goaltender interference against Vegas’ Marc-Andre Fleury, disallowing a goal by Brent Burns. Couture was sent to the penalty box, and the Golden Knights scored on the power play for the 4-3 lead.
