Solid Start for Couture

Standard Spin: Logan Couture came oh so close to the hat-trick bonus points last night, but his shot glanced off a teammate.  Regardless, Couture scored two more goals on Wednesday to drive his total already to 14 on the year (25 points in 31 games).  Whereas his Calder Trophy rival Jeff Skinner is currently on IR, Couture currently leads the pack when it comes to solid sophomore seasons.  He looks like a keeper.  Of note: Pavelski and Marleau also scored for SJ in the 7-2 romp over TB. (Dec.22)
