Crowd looks to be about two deep... for about 100 feet. So that's like, what? 200 to 300 people? Go Sens!

Questions to Answer

  1. Bob's first game of the year. How's he look?
  2. Matt Walker is getting his first look of the year. Does he do anything to prove he's worth keeping on the team at a $1.7 million salary?
  3. The big point of emphasis over the last few days has been the number of penalties taken in recent games. Can the Flyers cut back on the trips to the box?
  4. Alright, the Senators are not good. Can the Flyers take advantage and quickly make work of them? It's a team they struggled with a year ago.

Go Flyers.
