The San Jose Sharks (32-6-5) host the Detroit Red Wings (31-7-6) for the battle of the Western Conference. The winner of tonight's game will have the lead in the conference standings. If the Sharks win, they will increase their one-point lead over Detroit to three, but if Detroit can win they will take the lead by a single point.
Each team has won a game in the series at home. Detroit hopes to break this trend and win the game on the road in front of their fathers, sons, and mentors.This game can be a true barometer as both teams are coming off Thursday night games.
After Ty Conklin started Thursday's game, Chris Osgood will be Detroit's starting netminder tonight.
The game starts at 10:30 p.m. and will be shown on FSDetroit. Go Wings!
