A rematch of a 2010 Western Conference semifinal will be televised for a national audience Monday night.
The Detroit Red Wings, who are off to a phenomenal 17-4-3 start, will host the San Jose Sharks at Joe Louis Arena. Game time is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.
The Red Wings were eliminated by Todd McLellan's Sharks in the second round of the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs last May. McLellan was an assistant coach under Detroit's Mike Babcock when the Red Wings won the Stanley Cup in 2008.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
