Questions to Answer
- Brian Boucher is in goal for the Canes. How's that? And speaking of goalies, how does Ilya Bryzgalov bounce back from his little therapy session the other night?
- The defense has been absolutely atrocious lately. All over the place, out of position, slow. How do they look tonight?
- And as a team, how is the defense? Does Laviolette make any lineup changes in an attempt to improve the team D? And can it be like... even a little bit better?
- Hartnell and Jagr have been carrying the offense -- we're kind of ignoring most of the Winnipeg game, for the record, since it was so nuts, although even there, those two still played well in the offensive zone. Can we get some other contributions tonight?
- The Flyers should win the special teams battle tonight, but will it actually happen?
