The Flyers didn't hold a morning skate today, so we won't know who will get the start likely until Peter Laviolette's media availability at 5 p.m. We can assure you it will not be Michael Leighton.

Questions to Answer

  1. The Jets suck, but so did the Canadiens before last night. And The Artists Formerly Known As The Atlanta Thrashers were pretty good in Philly last year. So what's the deal this year?
  2. How does the defense look tonight? Because jeez, they were bad last night.
  3. And the goaltending, whoever is in goal... how's that?
  4. Considering Rinaldo will likely be back in the lineup, how does he look this evening? Crazy and harmful, or restrained and effective?
  5. What kind of minutes does Sean Couturier see?

Go Flyers.
