Discussion Questions

  1. Look at these two bottom dwellers, just dwelling. This feels like a 6-5 game with both teams scoring around three power play goals, huh?
  2. Jonathan Quick looks to be getting another start. Is he back to being good or are the wheels going to fall back off?
  3. Someone keep count of how many times they talk about Ilya Kovalchuk on the broadcast.
