Flyers Projected Lineup
Not guessing at lines here with the addition of Brayden Schenn. We'll know during warmups for sure. Just slotting Schenn in Zac Rinaldo's spot for the time being. Don't read into it.

Questions to Answer
- How does Schenn look in his Flyers debut? And where does he play?
- Considering we don't expect Schenn to play on the fourth line (although I guess he could), who gets bumped down, and how does that impact that player?
- We're expecting some sort of shakeup. If that shakeup impacts the Briere line, does it help get Danny out of his funk?
- Jaromir Jagr needs a goal. Is tonight the night?
- Vokoun vs. Bryzgalov. What happens there?
- Which line goes head-to-head with Ovechkin and Backstrom for most of the night, and like in previous years, can this Flyers team still frustrate Ovi with their strong defensive play?
