After the jump, we'll look at line combinations, a few questions to answer, and our in-game discussion.

Flyers projected lineup

van Riemsdyk - Richards - Nodl
Hartnell - Briere - Leino
Powe - Giroux - Carter
Zherdev - Betts - Shelley

Pronger - Carle
Timonen - Coburn
Meszaros - O'Donnell

Habs projected lineup

Gionta- Plekanec - Cammalleri
Kostitsyn - Gomez - Lapierre
Pouliot - Halpern - Darche
Moen - Eller - Pyatt

Hamrlik - Spacek
Gill - Gorges
Subban - Picard

Questions to Answer

  1. Will Mike Richards and P.K. Subban drop the gloves, and if they do, how early in the game does it come?
  2. Overall, does the nastiness carry over or are we looking at a game that doesn't live up to the hype?
  3. Brian Boucher gets a second straight start. Does he look as good as he did against Washington?
  4. There's pressure on both JVR and Zherdev now with Wellwood peering over their shoulders. Will they step up and prove they deserve to stay in the lineup?
  5. Can the Flyers find a way to beat the Canadiens defense and Carey Price, who frustrated them for 60 minutes a week ago?

I think we'll see another game like this from Richards tonight. And a similarly frustrating end for the Habs, since they treat November games like the playoffs and everything. Go Flyers.
