  3. Can Boucher play as red hot as he did on Sunday?
  4. Do the officials keep the whistles away, similarly to how they did so in Game 1?
  5. How does Leino react in the Gagne role -- playing with Richards and Carcillo?
  6. Can Scott Hartnell benefit from playing with two noted offensive dynamos, Giroux and Briere?
