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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
