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.
