It should give us a quick answer to whether the Flyers are for real, against a competent goaltender and decent defense.
Here's hoping. I don't think decent is going to cut it, not unless there's ample goal support. Kovalchuk looking hobbled doesn't help. I like their forwards more or less but I don't think they match up all that great.
Caps need to invite Flash to make a cameo appearance during one of the games at the Verizon Center. Remember them showing him on the jumbotron (somewhat of an awkward moment for him I would think) in the crowd at Game 5 against the Rangers which closed out that series last season. So he might be our lucky charm.
