Questions to Answer

  1. Do the Flyers control the pace from the outset?
  2. Will Chris Pronger let his presence be known immediately?
  3. Does Martin Brodeur look shaky, as he has all year against the Flyers?
  4. How many fans will JVR have in attendance?
  5. How many Flyers fans in general make the trek?
    Do the Devils get Kovalchuk out against Coburn and Bartulis a lot? Can Coburn step up his game?
  6. Can the Flyers stay out of the penalty box? Looking at you, Scott.

As mentioned above, tonight's game is not on national television in the United States. In Philly, you can watch on CSN and in the NY metro area, you can watch on MSG Plus. In Canada you can watch on TSN, and in Quebec you have the option of RIS as well. Listen with Tim Saunders and Bundy on WIP (link to the internet stream above), and as always, join us right here for the conversation. LET'S GO FLYERS!
