Claude Giroux says the Flyers need to play one game at a time.

The Flyers are five points out of a playoff spot but will have to leapfrog five teams in order to make it. The good news is that Philadelphia has games in hand on everyone above them. "We have to look at the small picture," Giroux said after his Metropolitan Division team fell to the Atlantic Division, 4-3, in the opener of the three-on-three all-star tournament at Bridgestone Arena. "I think when we go game by game, that's when we play our best. We have some catching up to do, but we know it's a process, and we know we're playing the right way. We have to make sure the first game back, we go right back at it."

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff was very complementary when talking about Claude Giroux.

Ruff coached Giroux at the World Championships and was quite impressed with the Flyers center. "He might have the quickest hands in tight of any centerman in this league," Ruff said. "He can look left, pass right. He can look at the point and make a pass into the hole. And he’s got some of the most dynamic moves when he come in on a breakaway, shootout, you name it. There’s a reason he’s here." Giroux will play for the Metropolitan Division at the All-Star Game Sunday. he has 14 goals and 39 points in 47 games. That's a nice total but fantasy fans expect at least a point a game from the star.
