The Carolina Hurricanes
will look to avoid making history as part of a three-game NHL schedule on Sunday.
Carolina has gone without a win in 14 straight games (0-10-4), which ties a franchise record dating back to 1992 when the team still played in Hartford. The Hurricanes will try to avoid loss No. 15 when they face the Minnesota Wild
(1:30 p.m. ET) at the RBC Center.
The Wild have had their own troubles -- they are just 2-9-1 away from home and come to Carolina off consecutive road losses at Tampa Bay and Washington.
Thirty minutes later, Ilya Kovalchuk
and the Atlanta Thrashers
return to the ice as they battle the Edmonton Oilers
at Philips Arena. Kovalchuk has been outstanding since returning from broken right foot. On Friday night, he had 2 goals and 2 assists in Atlanta's 7-0 win against the Los Angeles Kings
. He has 12 goals in 10 games this season.
In the final game of the day, the Chicago Blackhawks
(11-5-2) host the San Jose Sharks
(14-4-3) at the United Center at 7 p.m. ET. Both teams sit atop their respective divisions and San Jose is 9-0-2 in its last 11 games. Sunday night's showdown can be seen on the NHL Network in Canada.
