Questions to Answer

 

  1. Huge game for Bob tonight. How's he do?
  2. The intensity from the Flyers in the last 45 minutes of Tuesday's game, maybe even the entire 60, was off the charts. Does that carry over tonight?
  3. Meszaros and Coburn were great on Tuesday (and Saturday, really). Can they keep it up?
  4. Kind of piggy-backing off question 3: How much time to SOD and Boynton see tonight?

Go Flyers.
