Claude Giroux has yet to score a goal in five-on-five situations at home according to HockeyAnalysis.com.

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.

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.

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.

Giroux has a goal and two assists during that span. Despite the Flyers struggles on the ice, Giroux is having another fine season offensively. The 27-year-old has 14 goals and 46 points in 41 games this season. He's a can't miss fantasy option going forward.
