A few news and notes as the Sharks departed for a seven-game road trip, starting Wednesday night in Anaheim:

- Logan Couture will remain out with the flu. He did not fly down Tuesday night with the team, but will join the club in Anaheim, then departing for the East Coast leg of the trip.
-- Antti Niemi, pulled in the 5-3 comeback win over Phoenix, will make the start in goal.
- Scott Nichol is back in the lineup after finishing a four-game suspension. Nichol said Tuesday night that it's been brutal watching. With such a spread-out schedule lately, he missed almost two weeks without game action.

"Almost like the Olympic break," Nichol said of his time away.
