Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Flyers, for the love of everything Holy, please just play a full 60 minutes today?
  2. The Briere line was practically invisible yesterday and has been in a slump for a while. Can they snap out of things?
  3. The penalty killing has been fantastic lately, but the frequency of chances it's been getting lately is pretty high. Can the Flyers cut down on penalties, especially since last time these teams played, they didn't take a single one?
  4. Slump. Over. Today. Right?

Go Flyers.
