Logan Couture has hat trick to lead Sharks past Sabres 5-1

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) The San Jose Sharks have been struggling to score on the power play early this season. Splitting up star defensemen Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson to put them on different units helped do the trick.

Logan Couture had his third career hat trick and the Sharks scored three times on the power play to beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-1 Thursday night in their first game back from a five-game road trip.

"It felt better as a participant on the power play and I'm sure it looked better from up top," Couture said. "Both those guys are comfortable in that spot. They both wanted to be there. I think that gives us two strong units now."
