Questions to Answer

  1. Will the Flyers dictate the pace from the gate? Will it be apparent that they haven't played in over a week?
  2. How do the young guys, Nodl and Ross, perform?
    Can the Flyers stay out of the penalty box?
  3. Who replaces Lappy's penalty kill time, and are they effective?
  4. Boston's defensemen will make mistakes (Chara isn't a defenseman, he's superhuman). Will the Flyers capitalize on the chances they inevitably will get?

National TV! Hooray for all you non-Delaware Valley types, sucks for us. 610 WIP for the local call, and join us here for the conversation. Need at least one on the road, here. LET'S GO FLYERS!
