It was the best of times, it was the worst of times for Martin Jones in San Jose.
Bob Boughner and Logan Couture saw it all, and they both reminisced on the eve of Jones’ return to SAP Center as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers.
At the moment, it’s unknown if Jones will start. He stopped 34 of 36 shots in a win last night over the Seattle Kraken, but starter Carter Hart is in COVID protocol.
When Jones got traded to the San Jose Sharks in the summer of 2015, Couture reached out to old buddy Drew Doughty to get the scoop about the then-Los Angeles Kings back-up.
“Drew raved about him, loved him as a teammate. Positive, brings good energy to a room, just a calming goaltender,” Couture recalled. “Never got too high or too low.”
