NBCSN to air Hawks-Ducks on busy Sunday
After a tour of North America, the Ducks get back to the Honda Center on Sunday -- and their playoff hopes are a lot better than when they left.
After an eight-game tour of North America, the Anaheim Ducks finally get back to the Honda Center on Sunday night -- and their playoff hopes are a lot better than when they left.

The Ducks host the Chicago Blackhawks in one of seven games on Sunday's NHL schedule. Anaheim is back home after wrapping up a 5-1-2 road trip with a 3-2 shootout win on Thursday, a victory that moved the Ducks within four points of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference -- they're now six points behind eighth-place Dallas with a game in hand.

The Hawks will be trying to end a two-game slide that includes a 4-0 loss at Los Angeles on Saturday.

The NBC Sports Network will air the game in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Sunday's action begins with a pair of games at 1 p.m. Pittsburgh, an 8-1 winner against Tampa Bay at home on Saturday, hosts Columbus at the Consol Energy Center. The Lightning move on to New Jersey, where the Devils are coming off a 2-1 loss to Vancouver on Friday night.

At 3 p.m. ET, the Canucks continue their six-game road trip with a stop in Dallas, where the Stars are coming off a 4-1 win against Minnesota on Friday.

Two hours later, Ottawa will try to bounce back from Saturday's 5-3 home loss to Boston when the New York Islanders come to Scotiabank Place. Also at 5 p.m., Florida is back home after Saturday's 3-2 shootout win at Carolina to host Montreal, a 4-1 loser at Washington on Friday.

At 6 p.m. ET, San Jose, a 6-2 loser at Nashville on Saturday, will wrap up its nine-game road trip with a visit to Minnesota.
Quote of the Day

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
