After the jump, lineups, scratches and a hope that we don't get jumped by some Long Island thugs. This isn't a back alley in Wildwood on the 4th of July, anyway.

Questions to Answer

 

  1. Some Islanders fans are still angry with Danny Briere over that thing that happened a few months ago. Given the Isles penchant for revenge lately, does anything happen in that department?
  2. How does Bobrovsky look in back-to-back starts after a bit of a shaky outing the other night?
  3. How does SOD look out there on his broken-then-not-broken knee?
  4. Al Montoya is a fun punch line, but he's been pretty darn good with the Isles. Can the Flyers uh, stop that?
  5. The Flyers are always determined after losing a game, and they haven't lost back-to-back games in weeks. That continues, right?

 

7:00 p.m. start. Go Flyers.
