Feeling great, indeed: Giroux scores OT winner for Flyers

7 Comments

Well, good thing Claude Giroux played tonight.

There was plenty of speculation regarding whether the Philadelphia Flyers captain was healthy enough to play on Monday after taking a hit that might have briefly knocked him out on Saturday.

Giroux insisted that he was feeling great heading into Monday’s match against the Winnipeg Jets. Whether he actually does feel healthy, he certainly looked great, scoring the overtime game-winning goal for a big 3-2 OT win for the Flyers.

Naturally, overtime phenom Shayne Gostisbehere was involved, setting up the Giroux goal. Giroux also assisted on Wayne Simmonds‘ 2-0 tally, so there’s no denying No. 28’s impact in this contest.

With this win, the Flyers will finish tonight as the second wild card, even if the Detroit Red Wings hold on for a win against the Buffalo Sabres. (Philly holds a game in hand.)
