Sharks dismiss history at Joe Louis before Game 3

ROMULUS, MI – The San Jose Sharks traditionally fare poorly at Joe Louis Arena.

San Jose has won three of nine playoff games in Detroit, losing the last two in the 2007 Western Conference semifinals, and just five of 35 matchups during the regular season.

Top-seeded San Jose beat Detroit twice at home and will put the two-time defending Western Conference champions on the brink of elimination if it wins Tuesday night in Game 3 at the Red Wings' storied arena.
