After a one-year break, the Flyers make their triumphant return to the NHL postseason tonight as they kick off their series with the top-seeded Capitals.

Six years ago (tomorrow), the top-seeded Washington Capitals began a first-round series loss. Weeks later, the Flyers found themselves in the Stanley Cup Final. Hmmmmmmm.

Questions to Answer:

  1. How do the top-sixes on each side match up?
  2. How do the bottom-sixes on each side match up?
  3. Can the Flyers hold down the Caps' power play?
  4. Steve Mason's been killing it for months now. How's his first playoff start in 2 years go?
  5. Is it a Chippy and Physical kind of game, inevitably setting the table for more Chippiness and Physicality later on in the series?

Good to be back. It's go time. Let's do this. Go Flyers.
