Questions to Answer

  1. So, which team is it? The one who put up 6 against Toronto, or scratched and clawed to get 1 against the Oilers?
    Will Sundin finally get going?
    Will Mikko Koivu pull himself back up after a horrible showing last night?
    Can Backstrom brush off the softies against the Oilers?
    Will Alex Burrows try to kill Pierre-Marc Bouchard?
