After the jump, we'll take a guess at lineups and look at a few questions to answer tonight.

Flyers projected lineup

van Riemsdyk - Richards - Zherdev
Hartnell - Briere - Leino
Powe - Giroux - Carter
Nodl - Betts - Shelley

Pronger - Carle
Timonen - Coburn
Meszaros - O'Donnell

Lightning projected lineup

St. Louis - Stamkos - Downie
Malone - Moore - Harju
Bergenheim - Wright - Purcell
Hall - Thompson - Tyrell

Lundin - Kubina
Ohlund - Jones
Clark - Roy

Defenseman Victor Hedman is questionable tonight for the Bolts.

Questions to Answer

  1. The special teams were shaky against Montreal. Improvement back on home ice?
  2. The Flyers gave Dan Ellis no problems last time the Bolts were in town. Can they make him miserable tonight?
  3. Any signs of fatigue from Bobrovsky?
  4. James van Riemsdyk didn't look great the other night, and Andreas Nodl replaced him at times on the line with Richards and Zherdev. Same story, or do we see JVR solidify his spot with 18 and 93 tonight?
  5. Can the Flyers stop that super-potent Lightning top line?

CSN locally tonight, NHL Network across the US of A. Go Flyers.
