Claude Giroux has steadily earned himself elite status in the NHL, sitting 2nd in points (tied with former Flyer Joffrey Lupul) and 3rd in goals behind Toronto’s Phil Kessel. The weight on his shoulders has gotten even greater with injuries to James Van Riemsdyk and Jaromir Jagr. Giroux averaged 18:42 of total ice time per game [...]

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Pronger, Nodl, Win Flyers-Bruins Tix, and More

Yesterday's news about Chris Pronger needing arthroscopic knee surgery (this time on his left knee) could not have come at a worse time for the team.
