Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Flyers continue to pepper Tuukka Rask with pucks and pressure?
  2. Will the Flyers score on the power play tonight?
  3. Mark Recchi scores a lot. Can the Flyers stop him tonight?
  4. Will the Flyers get some favorable bounces tonight?
  5. This is the third elimination game the Flyers have been in this season. Two wins so far. Do they stay undefeated with their backs against the wall tonight?

CSN broadcast, thank God. Unless you're not in Philly, of course, because you might not get the game. WIP if you'd like to listen, and join us here for the conversation. LET'S GO FLYERS!
