Questions to Answer:

  1. Big part of the win on Wednesday was that the Flyers didn't take many bad penalties. Can they do that again tonight on the road?
  2. When it's not at 5-on-5, can the PP and PK keep up their generally-improved performances from last game?
  3. Michal Neuvirth came up big in his first meaningful start in a month. He's gonna have to do it again tonight. Does he?
  4. If the Flyers ever get a lead, can they hold it a bit better than they did last game?
  5. Win? Please?

Go Flyers.
