Questions to Answer

  1. After over a week without a game, can the Flyers kick into gear quickly or does it take a while for them to find their sea legs?
  2. Does Jody Shelley's insertion into the lineup prove to be a smart move?
  3. Can the Flyers stop the Sedin twins?
  4. Roberto Luongo is about to have a kid later this week. His wife is in Florida preparing for a C-section. Does his mind appear to be elsewhere?
  5. Peter Laviolette predicted that his team would be "responsive" after the Christmas break thanks to that drubbing at the hands of the Panthers last week. Was his prediction correct?

Tonight's game is on CSN, but the radio feed is on 1210 WPHT, not 610 WIP. Join us early for Eagles talk. Go Flyers.
