Questions to Answer

  1. Michael Leighton's first game since... you know. What's the deal?
  2. Kimmo Timonen is playing, but you know he's not 100 percent. Does he show his injury?
  3. Both teams were completely obliterated in their last games. Extra jump off the start?
  4. Defensively, the Flyers have been terrible across the board in the last two. Any improvement in that department?
Go Flyers.
