Questions to Answer:

  1. The Flyers started last night's game with their single best period of the season. Is there any way they can get out to even a remotely similar start tonight on a back-to-back?
  2. Neuvirth's turn in net after a strong five games from Steve Mason. How's he do?
  3. Arguably the two frontrunners for the Calder Trophy are in the building tonight. Who has a bigger night: Shayne Gostisbehere or Artemi Panarin?
  4. Toews and Kane have been moved to the same line after being apart for just about the entire season. How do the Flyers try and match up with them, and does it work?
  5. Are the Flyers in a playoff spot by the time tonight ends?

Go Flyers.
