Questions to Answer

  1. The worst team in the NHL is the perfect medicine for a four-game slump, right?
  2. Carcillo and Shelley both in tonight. How's that go?
  3. After a day off, do the Flyers look as tired as they have lately?
  4. How's Jeff Carter look after recovering from the flu that really seemed to kick his ass?

Go Flyers.
