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

I'm here to develop a winning culture and a winning team. There is a bright future ahead of this team.  A lot of young, great hockey players here and on the way … a fan base that's passionate about the game of hockey.

— Dan Bylsma after being introduced as new coach of the Buffalo Sabres
