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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
