Leafs pay rare visit to Anaheim on Sunday
Forgive the fans at Honda Center if they don't recognize the visiting team on Sunday. The guys in the blue and white sweaters are the Toronto Maple Leafs, who head to Anaheim for the first time in more than two years and just the third time since 2003.

The Leafs will be looking to complete a perfect week on the road when the puck drops at 9 p.m. ET. They come to Southern California after a 7-1 win at Tampa Bay on Tuesday and a 4-3 shootout win in Dallas on Friday. The struggling Ducks blew a 4-2 third-period lead to Chicago at home on Friday and ended up with a 6-5 loss.

Sunday's action gets under way at 5 p.m. ET when the Ottawa Senators return home to host Carolina. The Senators ended their six-game road trip with a 6-3 loss at Pittsburgh on Friday, the same night the 'Canes lost 3-1 at home to Winnipeg.

The other games both get under way at 6 p.m. ET. Minnesota tries to start a new winning streak when it hosts Calgary in another battle of team that lost Friday. The Wild fell 5-2 to Edmonton, while Calgary was beaten 2-0 at St. Louis. The Blues move on to Columbus, where the Jackets will try to build on Friday's 5-1 rout of Buffalo.
Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
