Bruins-Flyers highlights Sunday's schedule
The Flyers and Bruins are both scrambling to stay on top of their respective divisions, so Sunday's meeting has plenty of importance for both teams.
The Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins are both scrambling to stay on top of their respective divisions, so Sunday's meeting at the Wells Fargo Center has plenty of importance for both teams.

Both teams are coming off games on Saturday. The Bruins lost 1-0 at home to the New York Rangers, while the Flyers came home from Long Island with a 4-1 victory.

RDS will air the game in Canada, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Sunday's four-game schedule starts at 1 p.m. ET when the Pittsburgh Penguins, who are chasing Philadelphia for first place in the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference, host Florida. Pittsburgh has won its last three games via shootout, including a 1-0 win against New Jersey on Friday. The Panthers have dropped three in a row, including Friday night's 4-2 loss at Buffalo.

An hour later, Ottawa ties for its third win in four days when it visits Atlanta. The Senators flew south after a 2-0 home win against Washington on Friday, the same night the Thrashers lost 3-1 at home to Vancouver.

The Canucks continue their road trip at 5 p.m. ET when they visit Columbus, which is back home after losing 3-0 at Phoenix on Thursday.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
