    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday from the perspective of three players. 3. Claude Giroux You almost have to feel a little bit bad for the Penguins… almost. Already leading the NHL in man games lost to injury, Pittsburgh was forced to scratch All-Star forwards…

  2. 3 Stars: Ref disallows late goal in Flyers’ 2-1 loss to Devils—right call?

    Mark Streit, Steve Mason, Jaromir Jagr

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday from the perspective of three players, er… people. 3. Tom Kowal That name might not be familiar to many Flyers or even hockey fans. The only reason I know it now is because he might’ve cost the home…

  4. 3 Stars: Giroux, Flyers erase 2-goal third-period deficit in Washington

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-4 overtime victory over the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center on Sunday as told from the perspective of three players. 3. Vincent Lecavalier The 33-year-old has been something of a disappointment in the first of a five-year deal he signed with the Flyers over the summer, but he came up big…

    *Leading up to the Flyers’ return to the ice from the Olympic break on Thursday night and the official start of their playoff push, we’re going to break down different parts of the team and where they stand with 23 games left in the regular season. Today’s focus: the forwards, offense and power play. *…

  6. Claude Giroux is still not going to the Olympics

    Feb 6, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT

    giroux

    Team Canada announced the Olympics replacement for Steven Stamkos this morning and it was not Flyers Captain Claude Giroux. Instead, Steve Yzerman decided to go with right winger Martin St. Louis. That Giroux was left off the team yet again is not overly surprising, though he certainly made a strong case since the initial snub.…

  7. Giroux was near tears over not making Canadian Olympic team

    Jan 7, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    giroux

    You have to feel for Claude Giroux a little bit, who was left off of the Canadian hockey team’s roster on Tuesday for the upcoming Olympics in February. The Philadelphia Flyers captain got off to a slow start this season, and while he’s been hot of late, well, that’s what happens. How much did Giroux…

    For one brief moment, all was right in the universe. The Philadelphia Flyers had just tied the Edmonton Oilers in the third period with a Scott Hartnell goal off the two-man advantage, and Ilya Bryzgalov cracked. Luckily, it was captured forever in a brilliant GIF. There really is no other way to describe this besides…

    Claude Giroux

    Well, for your sake, I certainly hope you didn’t change the channel or leave the Wells Fargo Center after the second period of Thursday night’s Flyers game. If you did, you’re probably feeling pretty salty right about now because you missed the rest of a game we’re going to be talking about for a while.…

  10. Stop blaming Claude Giroux for Flyers scoring woes

    Dec 13, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    giroux.habs

    Flyers captain Claude Giroux has taken an abundance of heat lately. As the captain and most talented attacker, he rightfully wears the responsibility of his 28th ranked offense and 18th ranked power play. He deserves contempt for his lackadaisical play and poor puck decisions. Yet while much of the condemnation facing Giroux is justified, the…

  11. Looking back at Philadelphia pro athletes’ Movember mustaches

    With another Movember in the books as of last Saturday, it’s time for The 700 Level to take a look back at some of the fine mustaches that adorned the upper-lip areas of your favorite Philadelphia pro athletes. Yes, mostly Flyers are featured. Sorry. A relentless search of the interwebs and social media didn’t produce…

  12. Texts from Mike Richards kinda helped Claude Giroux break out of his funk

    Nov 20, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    5-carter-richards-USA

    There’s a lot of pressure that comes with being the best player on the Flyers. That pressure is magnified when you’re also the captain of the Flyers. Combine those two things with an underperforming team and a personal 15-game goal-less drought to start the season and it’s basically an apocalyptic Philadelphia hockey crisis. Good thing…

  13. Claude Giroux FINALLY scores his first goal of season

    Nov 11, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    claude.giroux

    Well, it only took six weeks, but Flyers’ superstar Claude Giroux finally scored his first goal of the 2013-14 season. Giroux wristed the puck past Edmonton goaltender Devan Dubnyk at 11 minutes, 26 seconds of the third period for the eventual game-winner in the Flyers’ 4-2 victory over the Oilers this past Saturday afternoon at…

  14. Quotable: Flyers aren’t even convinced they’re dangerous at the moment

    Nov 7, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    giroux.faceoff

    It’s been a rough go for the Philadelphia Flyers early into their 2013-14 campaign. They’ve gone through one coach already and the puck just doesn’t seem to be bouncing their way at all. Fans don’t really see a lot to believe in from this team and, in a somewhat brutally honest quote from Claude Giroux,…

  15. Vinny Lecavalier joins Claude Giroux on Flyers’ top line

    Oct 22, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    giroux-lecav-streit

    This is certainly one way to help the captain and franchise player snap his goal-less streak. Reports from Tuesday’s morning practice have four-time All Star Vincent Lecavalier skating with Claude Giroux on the top line, a look that should debut when the Orange & Black return to action against the New York Rangers on Thursday.…

  16. Giroux: Flyers will ‘bring the fans back on our side’ against Penguins

    Oct 17, 2013, 4:54 PM EDT

    giroux

    With just two points in the standings, the Flyers are the worst team in the NHL seven games into the 2013-14 season. You can’t blame fans for being dismissive or downright pissed off with the direction of the franchise at the moment. Meanwhile, Claude Giroux is struggling to meet what are perhaps some unrealistic expectations…

  17. Why Jake Voracek wasn’t on the top line with Claude Giroux on Wednesday

    Oct 5, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    giroux-voracek

    If you were wondering why Jakub Voracek did not skate on Claude Giroux’s line in the Fleyrs’ season opener, you weren’t alone. Both CSN’s Tim Panaccio and Sam Carchidi for the Inquirer wrote about Peter Laviolette’s perplexing decision for Saturday, so while for all we know the arrangement was only for one game, the aftershock…

  18. Are 2013-14 Flyers pulling in too many different directions?

    Oct 2, 2013, 4:09 PM EDT

    giroux-lecav-streit

    A new season is dawning for the Flyers, and with any new season comes hope. The road to the Stanley Cup Playoffs is a long one, and there surely will be bumps along the way, but if the Orange & Black can return to the postseason, anything can happen in the NHL. Are the Flyers…

    That’s Claude Giroux’s sweater in his locker stall. He’ll suit up in a game on Tuesday night for the first time since the infamous pitching wedge incident, as the Flyers play their penultimate preseason game against the New Jersey Devils. Whether Giroux was going to skate—or should for that matter—was a topic of discussion all…

    If you suggest a trade on the internet you are going to be torn to pieces. That is a fact of life. Doesn’t matter the forum, doesn’t matter the trade. You’re either giving away too much and getting too little, or you’re an idiot who is severely over-valuing the assets you’re prepared to give up.…

  21. Claude Giroux: It Was the Pitching Wedge

    Sep 4, 2013, 12:03 PM EDT

    giroux

    Claude Giroux was at the Skate Zone over in Vorhees today working on skating drills but not using his stick because he’s recovering from surgery on the torn tendons in his hand that he injured playing golf a couple of weeks ago. Many wondered how exactly Giroux sliced his wrist and Tim Panaccio tells the…

  22. Claude Giroux Has a Pretty Nasty Slice On the Golf Course

    Aug 16, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    giroux

    I’m not a golfer, obviously, but slicing a bunch of tendons due to a golf club shattering sounds like a pretty unlikely occurrence. But the power of a Claude Giroux slapshot/swing cannot be underestimated. Equipment made for a sport such as golf cannot handle the Giroux power. According to reports out of Canada on Thursday,…

  24. Claude Giroux’s Cap Hit to Become Fifth-Largest in the NHL

    Jul 5, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    giroux

    We’re playing a little bit of catch-up here today, because while we were out celebrating the Fourth of July on Thursday, the Flyers were taking care of business with their franchise player. The big news from over the holiday was Claude Giroux agreeing to an eight-year extension worth $66.2 million, with a full no-movement clause…
