Giroux posted two assists, including one on the power play, in a 6-5 overtime defeat against the Flames on Wednesday. That's multiple points in three of the last four games for Giroux, and the hot streak has put him in a place very similar to where he was a season ago. Giroux only has 11 goals, but he is among the leaders with 27 assists and thus has 39 points in 29 games. Last season, Giroux led the league with 68 assists. In the past 10 games, he has four goals and 16 points.
Giroux scored a goal and three assists in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sabres. The goal, an unassisted shorthanded tally early in the third period, proved to be the game-winner as Giroux brought the Flyers back -- and then some -- from a 2-0 deficit. The 30-year-old has been on fire since the beginning of November with seven multi-point performances in 15 games, and a total of eight goals and 22 points over that stretch.
Giroux finished with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Columbus. Giroux opened the scoring in the first period before assisting on the first of two goals by defenseman Travis Sanheim. With 32 points through 26 games, Philadelphia's captain is on pace to finish with more points than games played for the fourth time in his career.
Giroux has nine goals and 21 assists, including eight power-play points, in 25 games this season. He's ranked 17th in the NHL in assists, but Giroux is actually on pace for 68 helpers again, which led the league in 2017-18. Some players ahead of him on the assist list probably won't be able to continue their pace, but Giroux probably can. He's producing helpers at both even strength and on the power play. The Flyers captain also owns a 11.4 shooting percentage, which is right on par with his career norm.
Giroux tallied three assists Friday in a 4-0 win over the Rangers. Friday's performance gives Giroux 20 helpers on the year, to go along with eight goals. The electrifying winger has notched 15 points in November, playing exceptionally well in the season's second month. It's worth noting the 30-year-old is coming off a career high in assists last season with 68. Right now, Giroux is producing helpers at a similar rate.
