Center Claude Giroux was in on all three goals for the Philadelphia Flyers in their 3-2 overtime victory over the visiting Carolina Hurricanes Monday night.
Giroux picked up his eighth assist of the season on the game-winning goal by Shayne Gostisbehere (his second goal of the season) on a power play 24 seconds into the OT. Giroux also assisted on a power-play goal by Brayden Schenn (sixth) at 10:20 of the first. Giroux scored his seventh goal of the season while the Flyers were shorthanded at 15:08 of the second period. For the Flyers, the win was their first at home since Oct. 24, when they defeated the New York Rangers by the same 3-2 score, also in a shootout. They had lost their past six in Philly.

The Philadelphia Flyers were shutout for the second consecutive game Saturday.

The Flyers dropped a 4-0 decision to Ottawa after losing 1-0 to San Jose Thursday. It's not as if the Flyers are not getting chances as they have put 70 shots on goal in the last two games but seem to be snake-bitten. "We got pucks to the net and some of them were going through and I don’t know how [Anderson] stopped them," Claude Giroux said. "He played a good game. We had a good start. I think we played the way we wanted to but then they scored the first goal and it changed the way we were playing. We need to learn from this and keep playing 60 minutes the same way. Once we start doing that we’ll start being successful a little more."

The Philadelphia Flyers power play is 27th in the NHL this season.

That's a big drop from the third best overall last season. The Flyers are the worst scoring team in the NHL this season as they are averaging 1.79 goals per game. Claude Giroux leads the way with six goals this season and that's bad because the center is more of a playmaker than a scorer. The Flyers will try to reverse the trend Saturday when they take on the Ottawa Senators.

Claude Giroux scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss over Los Angeles.

Giroux picked up the primary assist on Shayne Gostisbehere's first period goal. He scored one of his own in the third frame to give the Flyers a 2-1 lead at the time. The 27-year-old has scored in two of his last three contests and now has six goals and 13 points in 18 games. Jakub Voracek and Michael Del Zotto registered the assists on Giroux's goal.

Claude Giroux scored his fifth goal of the season on Thursday night in a 5-2 loss to Washington.

Claude Giroux registered two assists to lead the Flyers to a 3-0 win over Winnipeg Saturday night.

The talented pivot now has four goals and nine points in 14 games this season. Matt Read, Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn scored for Philly, while Jakub Voracek and Mark Streit also registered assists in the victory. Giroux is beginning to heat up after a slow start. He has four points in his last four games and appears to be back on track for another 80-point campaign.
Nov 7 - 9:59 PM

Claude Giroux recorded an assist in a 2-1 overtime loss to Calgary.

Giroux has four goals and seven points in 12 games in 2015-16. He obviously hasn't gotten off to the start many were expecting, but we're still looking for him to heat up as the campaign progresses. He still has the potential to finish with 70-80 points.
Nov 6 - 11:11 AM

Claude Giroux scored the Flyers lone goal in a 4-1 loss to the Canucks.

Giroux's goal was his fourth of the season. Giroux is a playmaker rather than a scorer but you could not tell that this season as he has only two assists after 11 games, which has to be upsetting to fantasy owners who were counting on a 45-plus assist season from the center.
Nov 3 - 5:49 AM

Claude Giroux scored two goals -- including the game winner in overtime -- to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-4 triumph over the Bruins in Boston Wednesday night.

Giroux's second goal of the season cut Boston's lead to 4-3 at 7:48 of the third period. After Wayne Simmonds tied the game at 4-4 with his first goal of the season at 10:24 if the third period, Giroux gave the Flyers the victory with his third goal of the season at 2:09 of overtime. Giroux beat Boston goalie Tuukka Rask on a slapshot. Also scoring goals for Philly were Pierre-Edouard Bellemare (first) and Sam Gagner (second). Defenseman Mark Streit had three assists.

Claude Giroux scored a goal in Philadelphia's 3-0 win over Chicago Wednesday night.

Giroux was playing in his 500th career game. He has 145 goals and 452 points over that span. Giroux is off to a somewhat sluggish start with two points in four contests, but he's one of the top forwards in the league and should be among the league's leading scorers by the end of the season if he stays healthy.

Claude Giroux will be skating in his 500th NHL game when he dresses against Chicago

The 1st round pick in 2006 (22nd overall) has scored 144 goals and 307 assists for 451 points in Flyers silks despite one assist in three games in 2015-16.
Oct 14 - 8:33 PM

Claude Giroux thinks he can be better this season than last.

Giroux had 73 points in 2014-15 and that was good enough to finish tied for 10th in NHL scoring but he certainly had problems in some areas, the most noteworthy one being he did not score at even strength at home until March 25. Look for Giroux to get close to the 80 point mark this season and once again place in the top 10 in scoring.
Oct 4 - 8:11 AM

Star center Claude Giroux scored the winning goal for Philadelphia in the Flyers' 5-3 triumph over the New York Islanders Monday night.

Also scoring for Philadelphia were Travis Konecny, Michael Raffi and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare (empty net). Notching goals were the Isles in this one were James Wright, Alan Quine and Justin Vaive.

Flyers owner Ed Snider clarified that while Flyers GM Ron Hextall will be patient with the team's young players, he still intends to contend in the short-term.

"The bottom line is, that patience was misinterpreted to mean that he was going to be patient with the team in and of itself," Snider said. "Which he's not. He's going to do everything in his power to produce a winner as soon as possible, which means it could be trades, it could be coaching, it could be all kinds of things." Philadelphia has missed the playoffs in two of its last three years. It had a 33-31-18 record in 2014-15, which led to the firing of head coach Craig Berube.
May 5 - 11:11 AM
