More than a decade later, the skate is on the other foot as many expect San Jose’s physical advantage to prevail for a potential monster conference showdown against Anaheim in the third round.
“We just focus on the game we play, just like we did against Nashville,” coach Ron Wilson said.
The Sharks won three of four during the regular season against Detroit. However, the two teams were done playing each other by early January so the Wings didn’t see the Sharks with forward Bill Guerin or defenseman Craig Rivet, and San Jose didn’t see Detroit with forwards Todd Bertuzzi and Kyle Calder, all of whom changed addresses at the trade deadline.
“We know we can compete with Detroit and we know we stack up well against them,” McLaren said. “But on the other side, it’s been a while since we’ve played them.”
