Flyers-Rangers starts busy day of hockey
The Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers have early call on Sunday.
 
The Atlantic Division rivals face off for the fifth time this season when they get together Sunday at Madison Square Garden in NBC's "NHL Game of the Week." The Rangers will be looking for their first win of the season against the Flyers when the puck drops at 12:30 p.m. ET – but they're coming off a solid 4-1 win at Ottawa on Friday night, while the Flyers have dropped three in a row, including Saturday’s 5-3 home loss to Buffalo.
 
There are also five other games on Sunday's schedule.
 
The Rangers' two local rivals, the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders, get together at the Nassau Coliseum for a 3 p.m. ET start. The red-hot Devils are 19-2-2 after Friday’s 2-1 overtime win against Pittsburgh; the Isles beat St. Louis 5-2 at home on Saturday afternoon.
 
At 5 p.m. ET, Washington starts a two-game swing through the state of Florida with a visit to the BankAtlantic Center to take on the Panthers. The Caps' 3-2 win against St. Louis on Thursday was their third in a row; Florida lost 4-3 in overtime at Atlanta on Saturday. The game can be seen on the NHL Network in Canada.
 
An hour later, Buffalo goes for back-to-back weekend wins when it pays a rare visit to Minnesota. The Wild have been off since beating the Rangers 3-1 in New York on Thursday.

The last two games, both with major playoff implications in the West, start at 8 p.m. ET. Nashville, a 3-0 winner at Vancouver on Thursday, visits Calgary. The Flames jumped to fifth in the West after Friday’s 4-3 home win against Columbus. At Anaheim, the Ducks host Vancouver, which won 3-1 at Los Angeles on Saturday in the opener of a five-game road trip and is atop the overall NHL standings. The Ducks rallied to beat Dallas 4-3 in overtime on Friday, moving into ninth place in the conference.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.

— Rangers general manager Glen Sather after being asked if he's constructed a team that can win the Stanley Cup before their 4-1 win against the Predators on Monday
