Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Flyers get back to their game -- as in, no "lazy hockey" -- in such an important game? 
  2. Similarly, does being on the road help them simplify the game and help them stop the stupid turnovers/bad breakouts?
  3. Sergei Bobrovsky has been stellar in Pittsburgh this year. Does that continue?
  4. The Versteeg-Richie-JvR line was the Flyers' best against Boston. Can they keep that going?
  5. The Penguins were very sound defensively against the Flyers last week. They controlled the pace of the game from start to finish. Can the Flyers steal that from them and dictate the flow tonight?

Go Flyers.
