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

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.

Giroux is on a three-game point streak. He has 25 goals and 73 points in 80 contests. That's a bit below what we were hoping from him going into the season, but not terribly so. He's recorded at least 70 points in four straight campaigns, not including the lockout shortened season.

The Flyers captain has goals in back-to-back games and points in three games in a row. His 21 goals seem low, mostly due to the fact he has a 8.2 percent shooting percentage. Michael Raffl and Ryan White notched the other goals. Jakub Voracek tallied three helpers.

Claude Giroux has just one shootout goal in 10 attempts in 2014-15.

"There's no excuses. You have to find a way to put it in," said Giroux. "It's you against the goalie. It's a mind game." Philadelphia is just 3-9 in the skills competition this season. The squad has a league-high 15 overtime/shootout defeats. There struggles after the third period aren't the only reason the Flyers will fall short of the playoffs, but they certainly are a significant one.

Mar 14 - 9:23 AM

Claude Giroux has been having a hard time finding the back of the net with only two goals in his last 18 games.

Giroux is 11th in the NHL scoring race but his poor offensive showing of late has prevented him from challenging for the Art Ross Trophy as he trails leader John Tavares by only nine points. He has 18 goals and 61 points this season and you have to wonder if he is banged up a bit.

Wow!!! That is quite a stat. Giroux has 16 goals this season with all six goals at home coming on the power play. He has 55 points this season which is good for sixth overall in the NHL so his fantasy value is still high.
Feb 14 - 10:48 AM

Claude Giroux has seven goals and 15 points in his last nine games against Washington.

This is significant as the Flyers are in Washington to take on the Capitals Sunday. Giroux has been slumping of late with no points in his last three games and only two goals and four points in his last nine. He is poised for a breakout game and it could come against Washington today.
Feb 8 - 10:56 AM

Claude Giroux thinks the Philadelphia Flyers should be in the playoffs.

Giroux thinks there is plenty of talent on this year's edition of the team and can't believe the Flyers are 12 points out of a playoff spot. "I'm not the only one frustrated. I think everyone in the room is frustrated," Giroux said. "Instead of me going in and yelling at everybody, I think it's important we stick together and we do this together. We can't be blaming and pointing fingers. I think it's important we stick together, and if we do this, we're going to get out of this hole." Jakob Voracek and Giroux are first and tied for third respectively in the race for the Art Ross Trophy, so it is a bit surprising the Flyers are so far back with that scoring duo.
