  2. Can they harness the energy of the crowd properly?
  3. Does the top line get on the board tonight?
  4. Will Oskars Bartulis have another sound game, giving the Flyers vital, effective minutes from the third pairing?
    For the love of God, can they shoot high on Antti Niemi?
  5. Can the Wach crowd beat the United Center crowd in decibel level?
