Hawks host Cup rematch Sunday on NBC
Philadelphia and Chicago will meet again Sunday at 12:30 ET on NBC in a rematch of last season's Stanley Cup Final.
The last time the Philadelphia Flyers were on the ice with the Chicago Blackhawks they saw Patrick Kane jump into the air in jubilation and had to watch as he and his teammates celebrated capturing the Stanley Cup.

Philadelphia and Chicago will meet again Sunday at 12:30 ET on NBC in a rematch of last season's Stanley Cup Final, and the Flyers will have their chance to exact some measure of revenge in the NBC Sports "Game of the Week".

The Flyers have built off the momentum of their dramatic run to the Cup final last season and are atop the Eastern Conference standings. Danny Briere leads a deep group of forwards with 25 goals entering Philadelphia's game Saturday agianst New Jersey.

Chicago had to retool its lineup in the offseason, but the Blackhawks have shown signs of discovering their championship-level form of late. Rookie goaltender Corey Crawford has taken control of the starting job while Patrick Sharp -- one of the team's four All-Stars -- is on pace to easily best his career high of 36 goals.

Hockey fans in the United States will be able to watch the game live on nhl.com and nbcsports.com.
Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
