Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Flyers continue to shut down Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby, especially on the road where favorable matchups may not always be an option?
  2. How much ice time does the third pairing get tonight?
  3. How does Briere look in his return to the lineup?
  4. What about Nicklas Grossmann?
  5. Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier. Playoff debuts. How do they perform?
  6. Jaromir Jagr is the leading Flyers scorer against Pittsburgh this season. Does that continue into the playoffs?

Go Flyers.
