Questions to Answer:
- Do Steve Downie and/or Max Talbot end up impressing their old teams?
- Speaking of, how does the third line look with Matt Read out and Downie back up?
- A lot has been made of late about how much better the blueliners have been at generating offense and scoring chances. Do we see that tonight?
- New month for Steve Mason. December wasn't great for him but he ended if quite nicely. How's he start the new year out?
Mason (.922) and Semyon Varlamov (.926) in net. Go Flyers.
