Questions to Answer:

  1. Does Medvedev play? If so, how's he look? If not, how's the defense as it's currently assembled perform?
  2. How's the bottom-6 do today? They're up against a young, quick, and talented Detroit bottom-6.
  3. Special teams have mostly been good lately. Can that continue tonight?
  4. Have to think the Flyers have the edge in net as Mason faces off with Jimmy Howard. Does it play out like that?
  5. What's the magic number when the night is done?

Go Flyers.
