Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Flyers effectively get Kovalchuk off of his game... again?
  2. Will Brian Boucher be excellent, as he has been all series?
  3. Can the Flyers force the Devils to take penalties again, and if so, can they score on the PP?
  4. Does Peter Laviolette get the defensive matchups he would like against the Devils big guns?
  5. Martin Brodeur was much better in Game 2. Can the Flyers regain the edge against him?
