Logan Couture only wore a visor on Sunday.

Couture took a puck to his face on March 25 and missed the remainder of the regular season but returned with a full shield for Games 1 and 2. But he has having trouble locating the puck and ditched the shield in favor of a visor. "Figured enough damage has already been done," said Couture, who will require extensive dental work in the offseason. "If I get hit again, I’m just the unluckiest guy in the world." He would be.

Logan Couture is getting punished physically by the Edmonton Oilers.

Couture took a puck to his face on March 25 and missed the end of the regular season but returned for Game 1 of the playoffs. Couture needed a reconstruction of his mouth and it hasn't been pleasant eating for the 28-year-old. The Oilers have been targeting his facial region and he has been getting hit there. "That’s playoff hockey," coach Peter DeBoer said. "This isn’t the first team that’s tried to be physical on key guys. Logan Couture’s been targeted for physicality his whole life being the player he is. It’s not an issue." Couture ended the season with 25 goals and 52 points in 73 games.

Logan Couture (mouth) skated again on Tuesday.

He was on the top line between Joe Pavelski and Melker Karlsson during practice. Couture was also on top power-play unit and he engaged in some stick battles. However, it is unclear if he'll play in San Jose's playoff opener because he hasn't taken significant contact to his facial area yet. It certainly seems like Couture is on the right track, though.

Logan Couture (mouth) said the pain is getting a bit better, but if he got hit in the face again it could cause further damage.

"Oh, obviously," Couture said. "It’s not completely healed. It's going to take a long time for my face to completely heal. So anything to the face, it could possibly hurt it again. Who knows? I'm wearing as [protective] gear as you can possibly wear, and trying to be careful." As Couture mentioned, he's been wearing a full cage during Sharks' practices. He's questionable for Game 1 on Wednesday.

He skated for 10 minutes on Wednesday, while wearing a full face shield. Couture thinks there's a chance that he'll be ready to play by next week when the playoffs begin, but he's not sure.

Logan Couture (mouth) is still day-to-day.

He has missed the last four games after taking a puck to the face and it's uncertain when he will be ready to return.

That's it."

Couture has 25 goals and 52 points this season.
