Questions to Answer:
  1. Does the Read - Couturier - Downie line bring continued excellence?
  2. Is the even-strength defense/goaltending still awesome?
  3. Can the penalty kill be a bit better?
  4. The first period against Buffalo was ugly. Any better today?
  5. BONUS QUESTION: Does the MSG+ crew calling the game for the Isles pronounce Kimmo Timonen's name right at any point during their broadcast?
