Questions to Answer

 

  1. Dustin Byfuglien has been really strong on the back-end in Atlanta. Can the Flyers make him look silly like they did for most of the Final a year ago, despite the fact that they don't have Pronger and he's playing a different position?
  2. A few guys on the Thrashers like to drop the gloves. Any fights tonight?
  3. Can Matt Walker have a better game tonight?
  4. Atlanta is good this year, and they beat the Flyers four times last year. Can't brush them aside anymore. Do the Flyers come out hard against a worthy opponent?
  5. Snow last weekend still has Atlanta crippled. How many fans are in the building tonight?

 

7:30 start. Go Flyers.
