A national television audience will see if the Philadelphia Flyers can cool off the hottest team in hockey on Sunday afternoon.

The Flyers, 3-2 losers in a shootout at Boston on Saturday, will be back at the Wells Fargo Center for the final visit of the season from the Pittsburgh Penguins, who won their 11th in a row on Saturday by beating the Devils 5-2 in New Jersey.

NBC will air the game in the United States, beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET. Viewers in Canada can see the game on the NHL Network and RDSI.

The Penguins-Flyers contest is the only afternoon game but there are five more contests at night -- all of them with playoff implications.

Washington, eighth in the East, continues a five-game trip with a stop in Chicago in a game that can be seen in the U.S. on the NBC Sports Network, beginning at 7 p.m. ET. Washington lost 3-2 at Winnipeg on Saturday and enters the game with a two-point lead on the Jets and Buffalo Sabres for the final playoff spot. Chicago is back home after a 4-1 win at Dallas on Friday.

Three more games get under way at 8. Columbus concludes a Western Canada trip with a stop in Calgary; the Flames are home after missing a chance to move into the top eight in the West by losing 3-1 at Edmonton on Friday. Phoenix, off since a 4-1 loss at Calgary on Wednesday, visits Edmonton, and Nashville wraps up a four-game trip in Anaheim.

In the final game of the night, Winnipeg hosts Carolina at 8:30 p.m. ET. The 'Canes are coming off a 5-3 win at Minnesota on Saturday afternoon.
Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
