Giroux scored two goals on eight shots in a 6-5 shootout victory against the Panthers on Tuesday. The Flyers captain has racked up the assists early this season, so it was great to see him find the back of the net a couple times Tuesday. In six games, he has three goals and eight points. It's a small sample size, but Giroux is on pace to surpass his totals from last season -- 34 goals and 102 points -- both of which were career bests.
Giroux scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, while adding seven shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Senators. Linemate Jakub Voracek was busy racking up five points on the night, but Giroux made sure to get his as well. The 30-year-old topped the century mark for the first time last season, and with six points (one goal, five assists) through four games to begin the 2018-19 campaign, he's on his way to a repeat performance.
Giroux recorded two power-play assists in an 8-2 defeat against the Sharks on Tuesday. It's been an ugly couple of games for the Flyers to open the season, but Giroux has picked up where he left off last season. While he hasn't scored yet, the Flyers captain has four assists, three of which are on the man advantage, in three games. Last season, he led the league with 68 assists and posted 27 of them on the power play.
Giroux scored a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Monday's 4-3 preseason loss to the Bruins. Coming off a career-best 102-point campaign, Giroux already looks to be in midseason form, racking up a couple of multi-point efforts for the Flyers so far this preseason. The 30-year-old has picked up at least 27 points with the man advantage in five straight seasons, and there's no reason to think his role on the power play will shrink in 2018-19.
Giroux set up defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere twice on the man advantage in Monday's 3-1 preseason win over the Islanders. Giroux sailed to a career-high 34 goals and 68 assists over a full season in 2017-18. He's an elite center who hasn't missed a game since the 2015-16 campaign.
