Flyers-Hawks meet for first time since Final
NBC's "NHL Game of the Week" returns Sunday with the same matchup the network had in its last telecast. Only the location and the stakes have changed.
NBC's "NHL Game of the Week" returns Sunday with the same matchup the network had in its last telecast. Only the location and the stakes have changed.

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 watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
