Questions to Answer

  1. The Flyers have a week off after tonight. Is tonight a let-down, much like the Florida game before the holiday break?
  2. It's the last time the Flyers and Habs face each other this season. Can the Flyers steal the season series?
  3. Montreal's crappy on the road. Can the Flyers dictate the pace and make sure that continues?
  4. The Gill-Subban pairing is the Habs' shutdown pair (I guess). Who do they use that one against?
  5. What kind of game do we see from Dan Carcillo, who's still fighting with this spot and has a rare second opportunity to make Peter Laviolette notice him?

Remember, tonight's game is a 7:30 start on Versus. Go Flyers.
