Questions to Answer

  1. Steven Stamkos scores about 99.9 percent of his goals by sneaking down around the bottom of the circle and blasting a one-timer into the net. He ate Braydon Coburn alive with this last time these teams met. Can the Flyers stop that?
  2. Gagne has been much better lately for the Lightning. How's he do tonight?
  3. The Lightning are terrible in transition and in the neutral zone. Can the Flyers exploit that weakness?
  4. The power play actually scored some goals in the last game before the break. That ends the several-month-long funk, right? (Probably not.)

7:30 start. Go Flyers.
