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.
There's not much to say. We played like [garbage]. I think every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed about how they played tonight. Every single person. To start a road trip, one of the biggest road trips and have a division rival chasing you down and have a ton on the line, it's ridiculous how we played tonight.
