Questions to Answer

  1. Pittsburgh defense has been awful, starting with Kris Letang. Can they buckle down at all?
  2. Can Sean Couturier continue to own Evgeni Malkin?
  3. Claude Giroux breaking out was a big part of the Game 2 win. More from that line?
  4. Can the Flyers continue to win the special teams battle?
  5. Does the crowd have any obvious impact on the game?

Go Flyers.
