Questions to Answer

  1. First big defensive test for the Flyers tonight. How do they hold up?
  2. Who goes head to head with the Sedins?
  3. The power play has been decent, but it could be better. How's it look tonight?
  4. Over/under on the amount of derisive Luongo chants tonight is set at FOUR. So, over or under?
