Questions to Answer
- 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?
- Gagne has been much better lately for the Lightning. How's he do tonight?
- The Lightning are terrible in transition and in the neutral zone. Can the Flyers exploit that weakness?
- 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.
