Flyers’ Claude Giroux Bites Opponents Jersey For No Reason

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux bit Florida Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson’s jersey on the way to a face off on Thursday night, in one of the more bizarre interactions I’ve ever seen in a hockey game. I’m not sure why Giroux did it, maybe he just wanted a snack. It obviously wasn’t a malicious bite. […] The post Flyers’ Claude Giroux Bites Opponents Jersey...

Postgame Perspective: Tougher defenses lie ahead for Flyers

The Flyers started to buzz in the offensive zone as overtime pressed on. The second point was there for the taking and they could taste it. Roberto Luongo had other ideas. Luongo stood tall in overtime and in the shootout as the Flyers dropped the final home game of 2014 and of a four-game homestand, 2-1, to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Just as it was on a 1-2-2 road...

Did Claude Giroux wipe his boogers on a linesman?

Claude Giroux is all the hockey world is talking about after he appeared to wipe his nose and then wipe his hand on an NHL official prior to a faceoff. It’s not clear what Giroux is actually doing, but it definitely looks like he’s ditching his boogers on the linesman.

WATCH: Did Flyers' Giroux wipe boogers on linesman’s back?

While there is no way to be certain — save for an admission by the offending party himself — it certainly appeared that Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux wiped his nose (presumably to extract excess booger-like substances from his nostrils) and then proceeded to wipe his hand on the back of a linesman.

Did Flyers’ Claude Giroux wipe boogers on the referee? (GIF)

During a face-off delay in Wednesday’s Lightning-Flyers game, Flyers center Claude Giroux took the opportunity to wipe his boogers on the referee’s shirt.  At least it looks like he did.  This might just go down as the second best booger-wiping incident.  The first is my three-year old leaning in for a hug and wiping his nose on my shoulder.  He gets me every time. via Next...
