Chris Osgood tries to join an elite group on Sunday.
Osgood will be trying for his 400th regular-season victory when he leads the Red Wings onto the ice against the Dallas Stars at Joe Louis Arena at 5 p.m. EST. A victory would make the 38-year-old only the 10th goaltender in NHL history to reach 400 wins – a milestone that would go along with his three Stanley Cup rings.
Osgood and the Wings, the leaders in the Western Conference, will be trying to bounce back from a 4-1 loss at Chicago on Friday in one of four games on the NHL schedule.
The Blackhawks will try to build on the victory against the Wings when they host the Los Angeles Kings at 7 p.m. EST. That game can be seen in the United States on the NHL Network.
A half-hour later, the Washington Capitals visit Ottawa, where the Senators are back home after a 6-5 overtime loss at Colorado on Friday. The Avalanche are home again for an 8 p.m. EST start against the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs have had a couple of days off since their 4-3 home victory against Boston on Thursday. That was their last home game of 2010 – the visit to Denver is the opener of a seven-game road trip.
