The Detroit Red Wings face elimination again tonight as they visit the San Jose Sharks in Game Five of their Western Conference Semifinal matchup.
With a win, the Sharks will eliminate the Red Wings on the anniversary of the same accomplishment last season.
The Red Wings played their best game of the series to stay alive on Friday night but still suffered a let down in the second period and allowed the Sharks to come back. They’re going to need an even stronger game with San Jose looking to finish the series off at home.
No lineup changes are expected for either team.
Game time is 8:00 with TV coverage by Versus. I’ll probably miss the start of this one as I’ve got to head out of town to do Mother’s Day with the in-laws and won’t be back in time, but the fancy new forums are open for everyone else.
