Questions to Answer:

1. Can the Flyers take advantage of a Preds defense missing Shea Weber?

2. On that note, how many references do we hear to the Shea Weber offer sheet, even though he's not playing?

3. The Couturier line (and Couturier in particular) were insanely good yesterday even by their high standards of late. How about today?

4. Steve Mason on both ends of a back-to-back for the first time this year. What's he do?

5. The last few road games for the Flyers have all involved pretty slow starts. Can they fix that today?
