The First of Many: Watch Hartnell’s Sweet Setup of Giroux, Plus G’s Filthy Through-the-Legs Move

Jan 19, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

Well that second period helped ease the pain of the cringe-worthy first. Scott Hartnell’s pass to find Claude Giroux right in front of Marc-Andre Fleury was a thing of beauty, and rather difficult too. All G had to do was guide it through Fleury’s five-hole to get the Flyers on the board. Surely the first of many, many more for the Flyers’ new captain this season.

Giroux almost made some more magic happen with 8 minutes left in the second when he put on a filthy through-the-legs move and flipped it on net, but Hartnell wasn’t able to bang it home and Fleury was able to make the save. It would have been an instant classic from Claude.

So G.

…the Flyers currently trail 2-1 after two periods but a reinvigorated second frame was very encouraging after an awful start in the first…
