DUCKS (9-7-3) at SHARKS (10-8-0)
10:30 p.m. ET; NBCSCA, FS-W, NHL.TV
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler, who has missed the past 12 games with a knee injury, will be a game-time decision against the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center on Monday. Fowler, who returned to practice Saturday, was on the ice for an optional morning skate Monday.
Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle did not name a starting goalie after John Gibson made a season-high 50 saves in a 3-2 victory against the Florida Panthers at Honda Center on Sunday. If not Gibson, Reto Berra, who has made three appearances but no starts, would play.
The Sharks have lost two straight games, including 3-1 to the Boston Bruins on Saturday, and have scored two or fewer goals in five of their past six.
Players to watch
Ducks defenseman Josh Manson has scored a goal each of his past two games after not scoring in his first 17 games this season.
Sharks goaltender Martin Jones has held opponents to two or fewer goals in 10 of his past 11 games.
