Claude Giroux scored a power play goal in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Boston Bruins.

Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto opened the scoring in the first period before Claude Giroux made it 2-0 less than two minutes later. The Bruins managed to score two goals in the third period to force extra time. Giroux missed on his shootout attempt, but Philadelphia ended up winning the game in the ninth round when Shayne Gostisbehere beat Tuukka Rask. Giroux has five goals and 20 points in 24 games this season.

Claude Giroux has not found the back of the net in his last seven games.

Giroux seems to be going into these long goalless streaks a lot more in his last couple of seasons but he is an assists machine so we guess you have to expect it. Giroux has four goals and 17 points with a minus-nine rating in 21 games thus far and you should be expecting better things from him the rest of the way.

Claude Giroux scored a goal in Philadelphia's 3-2 shootout loss to Detroit Tuesday night.

Giroux has four goals and 15 points in 14 contests this season. Consistency has been the key to his early success as he has only been held off the scoresheet in two games so far.
Nov 9 - 10:37 AM

Claude Giroux saw his point streak come to an end at 10 games.

Giroux wasn't quiet on Thursday though as he scored the deciding goal in the shootout to put the Flyers over the New York Islanders. Of course, shootout goals don't count towards his points total, so he still has two markers and 13 points in 12 contests this season.

Claude Giroux registered an assist in a 4-3 overtime win against Detroit on Wednesday.

Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux has tied his NHL career-high with points in nine consecutive games (two goals, 10 assists).

The Flyers superstar is tied with Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers for the league lead with 12 points. He is, however, unhappy with his plus-minus. He is a minus-seven.

Claude Giroux is a minus-seven this season.

That's the bad news. The good news is that he is tied for the NHL scoring lead with Connor McDavid as they both have 12 points this season. "I'm more worried about the minuses there," he said. "If you want to be a good player, you have to be responsible offensively and defensively. We've got some work to do."

Claude Giroux produced two points in Philadelphia's 4-3 win over Carolina on Sunday.

The Flyers' captain pitched in his second goal and 10th assist of the season, raising his output to 12 points through the first 10 games of the season. The 28-year-old hasn't exceeded the point-per-game pace since the 2013-14 season, but Giroux's flying start brings back that possibility.
Oct 30 - 9:11 PM

Claude Giroux scored his first of the season Saturday in a 5-4 loss to Pittsburgh.

Giroux opened the season with nine assists in his first eight games but it wasn't until game nine that he turned on the red light. Giroux has 10 points which place him in a tied for third in NHL scoring. He had a disappointing season by his standards last year with only 22 goals and 67 points so look for a 75-80 point campaign this year from the talented center.
Oct 30 - 9:31 AM

Claude Giroux is not pleased with his team-worst minus-6 rating.

"I think that's one stat that is more important than other ones," he said. "When you're on the ice, you obviously want to be a plus player and that's not the case and one of the main reasons I'm not happy with my play. You want to be a plus player and be able to help the team win." Giroux is also still looking for his first goal this year, but he does lead the league with nine assists after eight games.

Giroux missed the morning skate Saturday but coach Dave Hakstol said he would play later that evening and he did. Giroux has yet to find the back of the net this season but does have six assists in five games. He is a must-play in all facets of fantasy hockey.
Oct 23 - 9:54 AM

Look for Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds to play on a line with Claude Giroux this season.

The trio played well together last year after Jakub Voracek was taken off the Giroux line. Giroux is currently with Team Canada at the World Cup and should be back at Flyers camp in over a week when the tournament concludes. Giroux had 22 goals and 67 points in 78 games last season but should do better in 2016-17 as he was hampered by hip and sports hernia injuries throughout the season.
