Questions to Answer

  1. Playing the back end of back-to-back games on the road could lead to a poor performance. Does it happen?
  2. Sergei Bobrovsky is back in net for the first time since getting hung out to dry against Florida. And after sitting in the press box. How's he look?
  3. The Ducks are not a very good team. Can the Flyers take advantage?
  4. It's New Year's Eve, so does Joffrey Lupul start the party early by spiking Richards' and Carters' Gatorade?

Go Flyers. Happy New Year. And Drink Responsibly ®
