Stamkos to appear on Monday's Cisco NHL Live

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos is one of the NHL's "Stars of the Week" and will join Cisco NHL Live with Steve Mears and EJ Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET Monday on the NHL Network. We'll also be joined by Flyers analyst Rick Tocchet on the Cisco NHL Arena Cam to disucss James van Riemsdyk's return to Philadelphia.

The Chicago Blackhawks look for 19 straight with at least a point as they play the upstart Oilers, while the Anaheim Ducks look to extend their current six-game winning streak by beating their interstate rivals, the Los Angeles Kings. We'll have both of those games covered, and Barry Melrose will predict when some of these NHL streaks will come to an end. NHL Network insider Bob McKenzie fills us in on his latest news and notes, including two big signings in Washington.

NHL 13 Prediction: Sharks vs. Blackhawks

Unbeaten in regulation and looking to set the record for consecutive games with a point to start the season, the Chicago Blackhawks - despite recent injury troubles – will look to continue their success against the once-dominant San Jose Sharks. Although the Sharks won their last game against the St. Louis Blues 2-1, it remains their only win in a forgettable February that includes 5-3 and 4-1 losses to the Chicago Blackhawks in their only two meetings this season.

Find the Official NHL®13 Game Prediction below. Watch as the San Jose Sharks face the Chicago Blackhawks tonight at 8:30pm ET on NHL Network.

Blackhawks’ Keys to the Game

• Healthy Hossa – Marian Hossa left the game Tuesday against the Vancouver Canucks after receiving a blow to the head from Jannik Hansen (who received a one-game suspension). Although Hossa practiced Thursday and is likely to play today, will he feel any lingering effects from the hit?

• Eminent Emery – As Corey Crawford recovers from an upper-body injury, Ray Emery must continue his stellar play in goal if Chicago hopes to remain unbeaten in regulation. Emery has posted a .925 SV% through six starts this season.

Sharks’ Keys to the Game

• Where’s the Frenzy? – Having lost four one-goal games and only allowing two or fewer goals in five out of eight games in the month of February, the Sharks simply have to find a way to put more pucks in the back of the net.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
