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 a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
