Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Flyers establish a fore check early on?
  2. Will the Flyers cut back on the penalties?
  3. Does the defense play as well as it did on Wednesday?
  4. Ilya Kovalchuk was clearly trying to do too much in Game 1 and he frustrated himself in the process, getting off of his game. Can the Flyers frustrate him some more tonight?
  5. More BOOOOSH excellence?
  6. Is the Parent for Krajicek swap a smart one?

No national TV in the States again. CSN in Philly, MSG Plus in the NY metro. TSN in Canada, RIS in French Canada. WIP radio. BSH for the chatter. 1,300-plus comments last time, let's break it tonight? Friday night, might be tough. Either way, LET'S GO FLYERS!
