Questions to Answer

  1. Off the bat on Thursday night, the Flyers had trouble getting pucks past Johan Hedberg. Without help from jumpy boards like at the Prudential Center, how do they beat him today?
  2. The Flyers have been very good at shutting down $$$$ all year long. Does that continue today?
  3. Can you tell that the Flyers have been on the road since before Christmas, re: extra intensity today?
  4. The Flyers again had a fine defensive performance against the Devils on Thursday. Again?
  5. Do the Devils look distracted after losing their captain, Jamie Langenbrunner?

1 p.m. start. Go Flyers.
