Questions to Answer

  1. Two slow starts in a row for the Flyers. It's night time now, so that should stop, correct?
  2. Can the Flyers get to red-hot Jose Theodore?
  3. How does the defense look with Pavel Kubina back in the mix?
  4. There are always tickets available on the secondary market, but it looks as though the Flyers have tickets available directly tonight as well. It's been 70-straight "sold out" games in Philly. Does that end tonight?

Go Flyers.
