Lines above, of course, are a guess.

Questions to Answer:

  1. How are the lines set up without Couturier, and do they work out OK for the Flyers?
  2. Can the defense do a bit better a job moving the puck up-ice today than it did on Thursday?
  3. Steve Mason was good on Thursday. Seems like that's going to need to continue indefinitely. Does it tonight?
  4. Do special teams go a bit better for the Flyers than they did in Game 1?
  5. How do the Flyers respond to Washington's hitting and physicality this time around?

Go Flyers.
