Questions to Answer

  1. In the battle of underperforming teams, which one performs to their expectations?
    Can the Wild take advantage of the large number of shots and turn some into scoring chances by crashing the net?
  2. Which Roberto Luongo shows up tonight?
  3. Can Brent Burns find his game?
    With no Pierre-Marc Bouchard on the ice, who will Alex Burrows try to kill?
