After the jump, lineups, questions to answer and our in-game discussion.

Flyers Line Combinations

Gagne – Richards – Carter
Hartnell – Briere – Leino
van Riemsdyk – Giroux – Asham
Laperriere – Betts – Powe
Carcillo

Pronger - Carle
Timonen - Coburn
Krajicek

This is the likeliest lineup, although it's possible Parent is replaced by Bartulis or Syvret and Powe or JVR comes out for the Flyers. Expect the above, however.

Chicago Line Combinations

Byfuglien - Toews - Kane
Brouwer - Sharp - Hossa
Kopecky - Bolland - Versteeg
Eager - Madden - Burish

Keith - Seabrook
Hjalmarsson - Campbell
Sopel - Hendry

Looks like Ladd will be out again for Hawks.

Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Flyers slow the Hawks down?
  2. Does Michael Leighton bounce back?
  3. How effective is Carcillo in his return?
  4. Can the top line (on either team) generate some offense?
  5. How long does it take for Chicago to be handed a power play?
  6. The defense is better, right?
