We're not sure on lineups, really. No real changes for the Devils except a Ryan Carter for Tim Sestito swap, but with Claude Giroux out for the Flyers, there will be shuffling. Zac Rinaldo is in for Claude, and it looks like Andrej Meszaros will replace Andreas Lilja on the blueline.
Questions to Answer
- How does Andrej Meszaros perform?
- Can the Flyers score first and a hold a lead?
- Can the Devils score first and blow a lead?
- Given the bleak circumstances in the series, how energetic is the crowd tonight?
- How do the Flyers avoid the lack of Claude Giroux in the lineup?
