Questions to Answer (These are the same questions as the Flyers' first elimination game a year ago in Game 4 vs Boston, tinkered only very slightly. They don't make much sense, but I'm superstitious.)
- How does [that winger on Richards' line] look?
- Whats the emotion like off of the start?
- The Flyers were strong in the offensive end for [most] of Game , but couldn't beat [Miller] or the [Sabres] defense. How do they make adjustments?
- Can [Tyler Ennis] not score tonight, please?
- Is this the Flyers' last game of the season?
