The Philadelphia Flyers come to Chicago on Sunday for their first meeting with the Blackhawks since the Hawks' 4-3 overtime victory in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final last June. The Flyers, owners of the NHL's best record despite Saturday's 3-1 loss to New Jersey, hosted that game -- this time, they'll be the visitors as the Hawks try to win their third in a row. They're back home after a 4-1 win at Detroit on Saturday.

NBC will air the game in the United States and on the NHL Network in Canada, beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET.

The Flyers-Hawks game is one of five on Sunday's schedule.

At 3 p.m. ET, Buffalo comes to Long Island for the back end of a home-and-home with the New York Islanders. The Isles are looking for a sweep after a 5-2 win in Buffalo on Friday. Also at 3, the Devils are back home to host the Florida Panthers, who lost 2-1 in a shootout at home to Tampa Bay on Friday.

The Bolts are also back at home -- they host Atlanta in a 5 p.m. ET start. The Lightning have won the last 10 meetings between the teams, including a shootout on Thursday. Atlanta has lost its last three games, all by shootout, including a 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday.

The Nashville Predators continue their western trip with a stop in Edmonton for an 8 p.m. ET game. Nashville has been off since a 5-1 win at Colorado on Thursday, the same night the Oilers lost 4-2 at home to Dallas.
Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.

— Martin St. Louis after announcing his retirement from the NHL on Thursday
