The Philadelphia Flyers
are in desperation mode following Saturday's 4-1 loss at Pittsburgh, and they'll attempt to right the ship as part of the NHL's six-game schedule on Sunday.
Philadelphia, which is just 2-6-2 in its last 10 games, will host the New Jersey Devils
at the Wachovia Center at 7 p.m. ET. The Flyers (37-32-6) have dropped to eighth in the East with 80 points; Boston also has 80 but has played fewer games.
Sunday's action gets under way at 3 p.m. ET, when the Washington Capitals
host the Calgary Flames
at the Verizon Center. Calgary (37-29-9) has come away with zero points in its last two games and is six points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference after a 5-0 loss at Boston on Saturday..
The Penguins return to the ice at 5 p.m. ET against the Toronto Maple Leafs
at Mellon Arena. Pittsburgh has earned points in seven of its last 10 games (4-3-3), but the improving Leafs won their last visit to Pittsburgh and are coming off a 3-2 OT win against the New York Rangers
One hour later, the St. Louis Blues
host the Edmonton Oilers
at the Scottrade Center.
In the final two games of the night, the Chicago Blackhawks
host the Columbus Blue Jackets
at the United Center at 7 p.m. ET -- three nights earlier, the Jackets routed the Hawks 8-3 in Columbus -- while the San Jose Sharks
host the Colorado Avalanche
at 8 p.m. ET at HP Pavilion. Colorado lost 6-2 at Phoenix on Saturday, while San Jose held off Vancouver 4-2.
