Questions to Answer

  1. The Wild called up a tough guy or two for tonight's game. THE FLYERS ARE SO BIG AND BAD, y'know? ... Nothing develops on this front, right?
  2. Sergei Bobrovsky is back in net. How's he look, considering he got shelled in his last game?
  3. How tough is it to beat Nickas Backstrom tonight?
  4. The Flyers started off slow against Montreal on Monday. Can they get off to a faster start tonight?
  5. Patrick O'Sullivan was drafted by the Wild seven years ago. Tonight, he makes his debut with the team. Anything exciting from him?
  6. The Wild are a bad offensive team at 5 on 5, so the Flyers should have no problem shutting them down.. right?

Remember, tonight's game is on TCN, not CSN. WPHT has things on the radio side. Go Flyers.
