Despite their 11-14-5 start, Claude Giroux believes the Flyers could be a dangerous team if they remain positive.
"We gotta stay positive in this locker room," said Giroux. "If we do we're gonna start winning. We're gonna start believing that we are a playoff team and when we do, we're gonna be pretty dangerous." The Flyers have some talent on their roster, but they've been unable to win consistently this season. Giroux enters tonight's game against Florida riding a six-game point streak. Dec 18 - 5:52 PM

Claude Giroux has been piling up shots on goal this season.

He is currently tied with Alex Ovechkin for the league lead with a total of 97 in 21 games. That puts him on pace to top 375 shots, which is significantly higher than his previous best of 242 during the 2011-12 campaign. "It just happens," he said. "I've got a lot of shots. I saw it last week [and said], 'Wow, I have a lot of shots.' The goals are hopefully going to come more. But when you shoot the puck good things are going to happen." Giroux has seven goals and 19 assists.

Claude Giroux scored a goal and an assist in Philadelphia's 5-2 loss to Detroit on Wednesday.

His second period goal tied the game at one, but it was all downhill from there for Philadelphia. The 26-year-old has been solid this season. Giroux now has seven goals and 19 assists in 21 games this season. The Flyers are in a major slump. They have now lost six of their last seven games.
Nov 26 - 10:36 PM

Claude Giroux was an outstanding 23-of-28 at the faceoff dot on Saturday.

Fifty-five percent is considered outstanding so you can imagine the superlatives being thrown around when someone goes over 82 percent in a game, especially on 28 chances. Giroux also picked up a couple of assists and has 24 points in 19 games. He is one of the top fantasy players around when it comes to points and efforts like Saturday on faceoffs only help his fantasy value.
Nov 23 - 9:22 AM

Claude Giroux assisted twice in the Flyers’ 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Giroux now has a healthy 24 points in 18 games this season. With only six goals on a 7% shooting percentage, there could be a big breakout coming in this regard, too. He also had three shots Saturday. Braydon Coburn (goal, assist), Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn and Mark Streit were the goal scorers. Jakub Voracek also assisted two times.

Claude Giroux had a goal, two penalty minutes and seven shots for the Flyers on Thursday, but it was not enough for the victory.

The Flyers fell 3-2 to the Wild in dramatic fashion. Giroux tied the score at two with under four minutes remaining in the third, but Jason Zucker scored the go-ahead goal with just 46 seconds remaining to hand the Flyers their fourth straight loss. Giroux though is sitting pretty this season with 22 points in 18 games.

Claude Giroux isn't expected to play Wednesday due to a lower-body injury.

Giroux was hurt during Monday's practice. The good news is that Flyers GM Ron Hextall thinks Giroux will miss days rather than weeks. Giroux has five goals and 21 points in 16 contests in 2014-15.
Nov 18 - 4:38 PM

Claude Giroux didn't participate in Tuesday's practice.

The Flyers categorized it as a maintenance day, but it's concerning because Giroux skipped a team-sponsored event on Monday to be medically evaluated. We'll err on the side of caution and list him as day-to-day until the Flyers provide more details.
Nov 18 - 11:10 AM

Claude Giroux had a goal and an assist on Friday and now has 20 points in 15 games this season.

Giroux has three goals and five points in his last two games with three goals and 13 points in his last nine. He is hot and will likely be a top-five scorer in the NHL barring injury, again this season.
Nov 15 - 8:27 AM

Claude Giroux powered the Flyers to a 4-3 win over the Avalanche on Saturday night with two goals and an assist.

This is setting up to be a monster year for the Flyers captain. With just four goals on the year, Giroux’s shooting percentage is just 6.2 percent, about half his career rate. Still, he has 14 assists and 65 shots (seven on Saturday) on goal, so he’s more than made up with the lack of puck luck. Wayne Simmonds had a goal and a helper, while Brayden Schenn notched the other marker. Jakub Voracek picked up assists on three goals and he had five shots on net.
