The defending Stanley Cup champs will play in front of a nationally-televised audience for the second day in a row on Monday.

The Chicago Blackhawks, who suffered a 4-3 overtime loss at Washington on Sunday in NBC's "Game of the Week," returns home to face the San Jose Sharks at the United Center. Game time is slated for 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.

San Jose, meanwhile, has earned points in nine of its last 10 games (7-1-2) and sits atop the Pacific Division at 39-22-8. The Sharks trail Detroit by four points for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.
