Great deal for tickets on Wednesday's Game 4 at the Wells Fargo Center, by the way: These tickets list for $235, but make an offer of $180 and you'll pay $165 after our partners at TiqIQ and ScoreBig! apply a $15 discount. With no fees, that's about $30 less than anything else out there. Act quick, though, because they'll be gone soon.

Flyers Projected Lineup Pittsburgh Projected Lineup
Hartnell – Giroux – Jagr Kunitz – Malkin – Neal
Schenn – Briere – Simmonds Cooke – Staal – Kennedy
Rinaldo/Voracek – Couturier – Talbot Sullivan – Crosby – Dupuis
Wellwood – Read – Voracek/Rinaldo Asham – Vitale – Adams
Timonen – Carle Letang – Martin

Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Flyers continue to shut down Malkin and Crosby?
  2. Can the Giroux line win the battle against Jordan Staal's line tonight?
  3. Pavel Kubina tags in. What's the impact?
  4. Pittsburgh's power play: Does it still suck? And the Flyers penalty kill: Still awesome?

Go Flyers.
