Questions to Answer

  1. The Flyers haven't won in Detroit in 22 years. That changes today, right?
  2. Brian Boucher is the goalie du jour for the Flyers. With porous defense in front of him (assuming nothing changes from the Anaheim game), can he throw up a big performance?
  3. To the defense: ya'll gotta get better, ya know? Today?
  4. Ville Leino's first game back in Detroit. He makes them all cry?

5 p.m. start time. We beat Detroit last year, we can do it again. Big benchmark game here. Go Flyers.
