Questions to Answer

  1. Are the Atlanta Thrashers still mathematically alive in the playoff race by the end of the night?
  2. The Briere line was great in Pittsburgh. More?
  3. As was the power play. More?
  4. Can the Flyers simplify the game and bring a "road style" game to home ice?
  5. Bob was great in Pittsburgh, as well as last Saturday in New York. Three straight games would go a long way towards building the playoff confidence. Yes?

Go Flyers.
