Flyers' Claude Giroux: Sets up pair of tallies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux recorded two assists in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.

Giroux helped out on goals by Sean Couturier and Travis Konecny in the contest. The 33-year-old Giroux is up to 41 points, 114 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 51 contests this year. He continues to work in a top-line role, and his offense is worthy of such usage.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Tallies twice, sets up another
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux had two goals and an assist with four shots in Monday's 7-2 victory over Pittsburgh. He also went 11-3 (78.6 percent) at the faceoff dot.

Giroux collected his 15th and 16th goals of the season while also drawing an assist on Shayne Gostisbehere's power-play tally. The 33-year-old Giroux has amassed five goals and an assist over his last five contests.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Nets another goal Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux tallied a goal on five shots in a 6-4 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.

Giroux broke loose in front of the net and deked MacKenzie Blackwood to tie the game at 3-3 at 3:34 of the third period. Giroux has followed up an 11-game goal drought with three tallies and nine shots over his last two contests.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Lights lamp twice in final minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux scored twice on two shots and had a pair of hits Sunday in a 4-3 shootout win over the Devils. He also went 10-6 (62.5 percent) on faceoffs.

Giroux single-handedly erased New Jersey's lead with less than two minutes remaining, scoring twice with netminder Brian Elliott on the bench for an extra attacker. Giroux made it a 3-2 game with 1:26 left, corralling a loose puck at the bottom of the left circle and whistling a shot past MacKenzie Blackwood. He tied things up just 22 seconds later, redirecting a James van Riemsdyk feed on the doorstep. Giroux also beat Blackwood to open the shootout. The 33-year-old forward had entered the night without a goal in his previous 11 games and had provided just three assists in that time. Giroux has 35 points in 46 games on the year.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Two helpers against Caps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux notched two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Capitals.

The Flyers captain had been held off the scoresheet in four straight games coming into Saturday, but Giroux's efforts weren't enough to get the team into the win column. On the season, the 33-year-old has 11 goals and 33 points through 42 contests.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Two goals not enough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux scored two goals Saturday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Islanders.

Giroux remains the Flyers' leader, but he's in the middle of a strange trend -- he has picked up points in every other game since March 15. Still, Giroux has 10 points (six goals, four assists) in his last 11 games and 29 points, including 11 goals, in 34 games overall. This every other game thing is likely to come to an end, but it's odd right now. And it could impact you significantly in head-to-head daily formats.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Two-point effort against Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Sabres.

He was right in the thick of the action as the Flyers rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the third period, potting the team's second goal and setting up Sean Couturier for the tying tally. Giroux is on pace for another strong campaign, racking up nine goals and 27 points through 32 games.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Collects goal, assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux scored a goal on four shots and added an assist Thursday in a 4-3 win over the Islanders.

Giroux set up Oskar Lindblom's goal 2:26 into the second period to break a scoreless tie, then he pushed the lead to 2-0 just under eight minutes later with a deflection tally in front of the net. It was Giroux's second two-point performance in the last three tilts, giving the 33-year-old 23 points in 26 games on the year.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Two points in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Rangers.

The Flyers captain has a three-game goal streak going as he continues to rebound from a somewhat disappointing 2019-20. On the season, Giroux has six goals and 21 points through 24 games.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Contributes goal in rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Sabres.

Giroux scored in the second period to cut the deficit to 4-3. The 33-year-old only has four goals in 21 appearances this year, but he's added 14 assists, 44 shots on net and a plus-7 rating. His strong playmaking keeps him viable for fantasy.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Puts team on back in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux had two goals and an assist in a 4-3 win over the Penguins on Thursday.

His goals were Giroux's first in 10 games. The second, which stood as the winner, was a sweet redirect of a backhand shot that Tristan Jarry couldn't snag. Giroux has nine points in his last 10 games and 17 in 18 this season.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Huge night in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux (not injury related) amassed three assists and led all players with eight shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers. He also won 72.7 percent (8-for-11) of his faceoffs.

That was quite a return to the lineup for Giroux, who hadn't played since Feb. 7 due to COVID-19 protocols. He assisted on goals by Erik Gustafsson and Shayne Gostisbehere (PP) to help the Flyers build a 2-1 first-period lead, then he set up Kevin Hayes' eventual game-winner in the second stanza. A perennial 20-goal scorer, Giroux has lit the lamp just once in 14 games this season, but he is tied for the team lead with 13 assists.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Back in there Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux (not injury related) will play Wednesday against the Rangers, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Giroux practiced Tuesday after being removed from the league's COVID-19 protocols, and he evidently showed enough to convince coach Alain Vigneault to plug him back into the lineup. The veteran forward had a 328-game iron man streak ended by his stint in the COVID-19 protocols, so he'll be eager to make up for lost time and add to his season total of 11 points through 13 games played.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux (not injury related) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Rangers.

Giroux returned to practice Tuesday after being removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list, but coach Alain Vigneault evidently wants to make sure he's ready from a conditioning standpoint before slotting him back into the lineup. Confirmation on Giroux's status against the Rangers should surface prior to puck drop.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux is on the ice for practice Tuesday, indicating he's been activated off the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list.

Giroux has been sidelined for over two weeks due to the league's virus protocols, but he's expected to return to the lineup Wednesday, skating on Philadelphia's second line and second power-play unit against the Rangers. The 33-year-old forward has racked up 11 points through 13 games this campaign.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Out next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux (COVID-19 protocols) won't play in Thursday's game against the Rangers or Sunday's game versus the Bruins, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Giroux remains in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and still doesn't have a definitive timeline for his return. Michael Raffl will continue to see additional opportunities in Philadelphia's top six until Giroux is ready to rock.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Shifts to protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Tuesday's game against the Capitals has already been postponed, as the Flyers now have three players -- Giroux, Justin Braun and Travis Sanheim -- in the league's virus protocol. There's no indication that the players have tested positive for the virus, so they all have uncertain timelines to return. For now, the Flyers' next scheduled game is Feb. 14 against the Rangers.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Postponement announced
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux and the Flyers' Tuesday night game versus Washington has been postponed, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.

Along with Tuesday's contest, Philadelphia's games versus New Jersey on Thursday and Saturday have already been postponed, so Giroux won't be back on the ice until Sunday against the Rangers at the earliest.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Keeps bagging apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils. He also tied a season high with three shots.

Giroux has dished out six helpers through seven games but is still searching for his first goal of 2020-21. He had mustered just four shots over his previous five games after shooting three times in the season opener, and it would serve Giroux well to keep putting rubber on net like he did in this one to make sure defenses don't start cheating towards passing lanes when he has the puck in the offensive zone.

Flyers' Claude Giroux: Two-point night against Pens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giroux picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

That's now three points in two games to kick off the season for Giroux, all of them helpers. Philly's offense as a whole has looked dynamic so far, and even if the shoulder injury Sean Couturier sustained Friday prompts some roster juggling, Giroux still figures to skate with talented linemates, especially with the man advantage.
