Tonight's goaltenders:

For the Flyers, Sergei Bobrovsky gets a surprise start.

For the Penguins, Marc-Andre Fleury

Nice early start today. After the jump, questions to answer and our pre-and-in-game discussion.

Tonight's Lines:

As reported by Frank Seravalli, so they are obviously unofficial.

Forwards
Carcillo - Richards - Carter
Hartnell - Briere - Leino
Van Riemsdyk - Giroux - Zherdev
Shelley - Betts - Powe

Defense
Timonen - Coburn
Meszaros - O’Donnell
Carle - Bartulis

Seravalli notes that the defensive pairings are extremely uncertain with Pronger out.

Questions to Answer

  1. The opening night start belongs to Sergei Bobrovsky. Are nerves an issue?
  2. How does the penalty kill look without Ian Laperriere?
  3. Does Chris Pronger play?
  4. Will the Flyers shut down Crosby?
  5. Can the Flyers christen the Pens new arena with a big win?
