Questions to Answer

  1. Steve Staios is playing. He didn't play last time the teams met, and the Flyers couldn't give him any pay back for his hit on Max Talbot. How long are our memories tonight?
  2. How's Danny Briere look in his return to the lineup?
  3. Can the defense tighten up?
  4. Can Ilya Bryzgalov tighten up?
  5. The power play has been really potent of late. More?

Go Flyers.
