Questions to Answer

 

  1. Brian Boucher was very good against Toronto. Can Sergei Bobrovsky play at that level tonight?
  2. Jody Shelley scored the most beautiful goal he'll ever score last time these teams met. Encore?!
  3. Atlanta's power play is pretty good, mostly thanks to Dustin Byfuglien's propensity to score on it. Can the PK knock them down a notch?
  4. Kris Versteeg has five points against the Thrashers in three games this season, all with Toronto. He seems to step up against his old teammates, and the fact that the Thrashers are basically the 2010 Blackhawks might have something to do with that. Does it continue tonight?
  5. The best remedy for a four-game losing streak is a four-game winning streak. The Flyers can get to three wins in a row tonight. Does that happen?

Go Flyers.
