Questions to Answer

  1. How awesome is Mark Howe's jersey retirement ceremony?
  2. Does the ceremony impact the hockey game at all?
  3. The Flyers won the other night, but they let Washington control the tempo of the game for just about the duration. Can they flip that switch in the other direction tonight?
  4. Ilya Bryzgalov as good as he was on Sunday?
  5. Can the Flyers muster up more than one goal?

Go Flyers.
