The defending Stanley Cup champs will play in front of a nationally-televised audience for the second day in a row on Monday.
The Chicago Blackhawks, who suffered a 4-3 overtime loss at Washington on Sunday in NBC's "Game of the Week," returns home to face the San Jose Sharks at the United Center. Game time is slated for 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.
San Jose, meanwhile, has earned points in nine of its last 10 games (7-1-2) and sits atop the Pacific Division at 39-22-8. The Sharks trail Detroit by four points for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
