Coming up at 3 p.m. ET on NBC it’s Game 2 between San Jose and Detroit from the HP Pavillion in San Jose. San Jose hopes to defend home ice and take a 2-0 lead in the series heading to Game 3 while the Red Wings hope to get a win today and head home for the next two games with some momentum.
Making things difficult for Detroit in that task will be Antti Niemi who hopes to show the Red Wings why he was able to help Chicago win the Stanley Cup last season. Meanwhile, the Wings look for Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg to assert themselves and show why they’re two of the best players in the NHL.
