Questions to Answer

  1. Do they players play up to the HBO cameras around them?
  2. That's a lot of firepower (with fists, not goals) in the Flyers lineup. Anything happen on that front?
  3. Jagr's first game at MSG since leaving for Mother Russia. How's that go?
  4. The Rangers stifled the Flyers last time out, keeping all threats to the perimeter and not allowing the Flyers to get in on top of Henrik Lundqvist. Can they learn from that?

Go Flyers.
