Questions to Answer

  1. Long memories. What do the Flyers do to Sean Avery today?
  2. Kris Versteeg looked a little lost against Carolina. With Mike Richards likely back today, can he look a bit more comfortable out there?
  3. As has been the case a lot lately, the Rangers need this game a lot more than the Flyers do. Can they match the intensity?
  4. Season sweep of the Rangers?

12:30 start. Go Flyers.
