Flyers Line Combinations
Gagne – Richards – Carter
Hartnell – Briere – Leino
van Riemsdyk – Giroux – Asham
Laperriere – Betts – Powe
This is the likeliest lineup, although it's possible Parent is replaced by Bartulis or Syvret and Powe or JVR comes out for the Flyers. Expect the above, however.
Chicago Line Combinations
Byfuglien - Toews - Kane
Brouwer - Sharp - Hossa
Kopecky - Bolland - Versteeg
Eager - Madden - Burish
Keith - Seabrook
Hjalmarsson - Campbell
Sopel - Hendry
Looks like Ladd will be out again for Hawks.
Questions to Answer
- Can the Flyers slow the Hawks down?
- Does Michael Leighton bounce back?
- How effective is Carcillo in his return?
- Can the top line (on either team) generate some offense?
- How long does it take for Chicago to be handed a power play?
- The defense is better, right?
