Game Thread: Red Wings vs. Sharks Game Five

This Western Conference Semifinal returns to San Jose, as the Detroit Red Wings need to build upon their performance on Thursday in the 7-1 beatdown of the San Jose Sharks to try to become the third team in NHL history to come back from three games down to win a best-of-seven series.

And while the Red Wings can't be expecting an exact replica of Johan Franzen's four-goal, six-point output, they'd undoubtedly like to see the kind of crisp performance we saw in March, versus the sluggish play we recognized from early January.

Puck drop is scheduled for 10:00 PM ET. The game can be seen on Fox Sports Detroit, Comcast Sportsnet (California), TSN, and Versus in its entirety (assuming the Montreal/Pittsburgh game doesn't run long). Comment away below.
