After a busy 13-game schedule on Saturday, four NHL teams will hit the ice on Sunday with one game from each conference.

The action begins at 5 p.m. ET, when the Atlanta Thrashers host the Tampa Bay Lightning at Philips Arena. It's the second of back-to-back games for both teams; the Thrashers lost 3-2 at home to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, while the Lightning lost 3-1 at Carolina.

At 10 p.m. ET, the Vancouver Canucks host the Chicago Blackhawks in a rematch of last season's Western Conference semifinal. Chicago, which crushed the Calgary Flames in a 7-1 victory on Thursday and beat the Oilers 5-2 in Edmonton on Saturday, is going for a sweep in the Western Canada portion of its two-week "Circus Trip." The Canucks had Saturday off after rallying from a two-goal deficit for a 5-2 home win over Colorado on Friday.
