Logan Couture doesn't think it should be hard for the Sharks to find motivation despite the fact that they're all-but eliminated from the playoffs.
"You're a rookie, you want to finish the year strong if you haven't had a good year. You're a second [year] guy, and you haven't had a good year, you want to finish the year strong," Couture said. "If you're a guy that's taken on a bigger leadership [role] and you haven't had the greatest year that you think you should have, you want to show it in the last nine games. If you're a guy who's [had a] 10, 12 or 14-year career, you want to finish the year strong." The Sharks will try to snap their two-game losing streak against Detroit on Thursday. Mar 26 - 10:27 AM
