The goal also gave him his 24th point on the man advantage, tying him with the Blues' Kevin Shattenkirk for the league lead in that category.

Flyers' Giroux (Leg) Confirmed To Play Tuesday

News: Claude Giroux (leg) is confirmed as a member of the lineup Tuesday against the Senators.
Analysis: He won't start the game for the Flyers, but does figure to wind up with his usual 20-plus minutes of ice time in any case. While Claude Giroux might not be as active as normal in his return from a brief layoff, his 13 goals and 30 assists across 38 games make it worthwhile to keep him active.

Flyers' Giroux (Leg) Looks On Track To Play

News: Claude Giroux (leg) was taking line rushes with the Flyers during pregame warmups and appears on track to play Tuesday against the Senators, Tom Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: The Flyers' medical staff will likely meet with Claude Giroux for a brief inspection after the skate, but if the center gives them the all-clear, he'll more than likely be back in the lineup. Check back for an official ruling on his status minutes before the puck drops, but those who can't afford to wait that long can probably feel comfortable keeping him active Tuesday.

Flyers' Giroux: Game-Time Decision Tuesday

News: Claude Giroux (leg) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Senators, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Claude Giroux skated briefly at the Flyers' morning skate but did not take part in line rushes, so it seems more likely than not that he sits. Be sure to check for an update on his status prior to game time if you're considering using him for Tuesday's slate of games.

Claude Giroux

Flyers' Giroux (Leg) May Play Tuesday

News: Claude Giroux (leg) is considered day-to-day and may play Tuesday against the Senators, Sam Charchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Claude Giroux didn't practice Monday, but hasn't been ruled out for Tuesday's contest. The injury occurred Friday when he was cut by the skate of Justin Faulk, and was expected to play Saturday, but he ultimately sat out. Still, the injury doesn't appear to be anything major, but it appears to be near the ankle, as he has discomfort putting on his skate. Regardless, he should be back on the ice at some point in the near future assuming he doesn't suffer a setback.

Claude Giroux

Flyers' Giroux (Leg) Out Saturday

News: Claude Giroux (leg) will not play Saturday against the Devils, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Claude Giroux did not even take pregame warmups after leaving Friday's contest with the leg injury. He should be considered day-to-day and questionable to take the ice Tuesday against Ottawa until more information becomes available.

Flyers' Giroux Not On The Ice For Warmups

News: Claude Giroux (leg) did not take the ice for Saturday's pregame warmups, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Craig Berube had said previously that the team would see how Claude Giroux felt after pregame warmups, but apparently the team has decided to pump the brakes after Giroux left Friday's game with a leg injury. Luke Schenn is expected to join the lineup in his absence.

Flyers' Giroux A Game-Time Decision For Saturday

News: Claude Giroux (leg) is officially a game-time decision for Saturday against the Devils, Sarah Baicker of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: It sounded like the Flyers were considering Claude Giroux probable to play heading into Saturday, so this shouldn't necessarily be viewed as a downgrade in his status. The Flyers will see how he makes it through their pregame warmup before rendering an official decision on his availability, but the expectation is that he will suit up and see his usual 20-plus minutes on the Flyers' top line.

Claude Giroux

Flyers' Giroux (Leg) Probable For Saturday

News: Claude Giroux is probable for Saturday's game against the Devils after leaving Friday's with a leg injury, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Claude Giroux suffered the injury in the third period after being cut by the skate of Justin Faulk. He initially feared the injury was his Achilles, but the diagnosis obviously proved otherwise, and he could play as soon as Saturday. The news should allow owners to exhale, as an Achilles injury would likely cost him an extended period of time if not the remainder of the season. The team should still provide an update whether or not he will be available Saturday before the opening faceoff.

Flyers' Giroux Leaves With Leg Injury

News: Claude Giroux left during the third period of Friday's game against the Hurricanes, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Claude Giroux's injury appears to have come from the skate of Justin Faulk, reportedly cutting him near the Achilles tendon. He was helped to the locker room, and will likely be done for the night given that the Flyers won't give an update on him until after the game finishes.

Flyers' Giroux Ripping It Up With Four-Point Night

News: Claude Giroux scored two goals and added two assists in Saturday's win over the Leafs.
Analysis: He has 39 points in 32 games and that includes 13 in his last 10. He only has 10 goals so far, but his shooting percentage is way down (6.6 percent) relative to the average (11.5). More goals are about to come. Enjoy the ride.

Another Two Points For Flyers' Giroux

News: Claude Giroux notched a pair of assists in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Another game, another two points for the Flyers captain, who now has seven points over a five-game point streak. He's up to 34 points in 28 games and makes quite the formidable one-two punch with linemate Jake Voracek, who has 37 points of his own.

Flyers' Giroux Helps Out

News: Claude Giroux notched a couple assists -- one on a power-play goal, the other on an empty-netter -- in Thursday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: He continues to roll up points (especially assists) with regularity -- health permitting, Claude Giroux has a highly legitimate chance at hitting 90 points for the second time in his career. His current 82-game pace would land him at 93, tying his career high from 2011-12.

Flyers' Giroux Grabs Assist In Loss

News: Claude Giroux collected his 21st assist in Wednesday's shootout loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Those 21 assists are a few shy of teammate and league-leader Jakub Voracek, but still good enough for third in the league. While Claude Giroux has 28 points on the season, he's only topped two points in one game. He seems due for a huge game, but he's a start regardless.

Flyers' Giroux Adds Goal, Assist In Loss

News: Claude Giroux notched a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Despite a disappointing start to the season for his team, Claude Giroux and linemate Jakub Voracek continue to rack up points. Giroux's 19 assists are the third most in the league, and his 26 points rank him sixth.

Flyers' Giroux Gets Two Assists, On 100-Point Pace

News: Claude Giroux picked up two assists in Saturday's win over Columbus.
Analysis: He has 24 points in 19 games, a pace that would see him come close to a 100-point season. And that's not even enough to lead his team (Jakub Voracek has the bead on that one). Still, we like what we see, and he's a mandatory activation in our eyes.

Flyers' Giroux Nabs Goal In Win

News: Claude Giroux potted his sixth goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Claude Giroux shook off any worries that the lower-body injury he suffered earlier this week would limit him, firing off seven shots in his 22 minutes of ice time. Continue deploying the star winger as you normally would.

Flyers' Giroux Appears Healthy

News: Claude Giroux (lower body) recorded four shots in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Claude Giroux was expected to miss Wednesday's game after blocking a shot in practice, but ended up being just fine. The fact that he skated 25:45 TOI suggests that he was not limited at all by the injury, and should be considered fully healthy moving forward.

Flyers' Giroux (Lower Body) To Play Wednesday

News: Claude Giroux (lower body) will play Wednesday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Girioux appeared ready to suit up after taking rushes in pre-game warmups, and here's the official confirmation. With 21 points already racked up on the season, it would be wise to get Claude Giroux in any lineups if it's not too late.

News: Claude Giroux (lower body) is on the ice for pre-game warmups, The Record's Andrew Gross reports.
Analysis: Claude Giroux is expected to go through warmups, and depending on how he feels, coach Craig Berube will make a final decision on his playing status. He's not officially set to play just yet, but appears to be trending in the right direction.

Flyers' Giroux Could Play Wednesday

News: Claude Giroux (lower body) could play Wednesday against the Rangers, Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Analysis: The expectation was that Claude Giroux would miss two games after suffering a lower-body injury during Monday's practice, but coach Craig Berube said Giroux will go through warmups Wednesday and if he feels fine, he'll play. Considering Giroux's production to date (5G, 16A), most owners will likely want to monitor his status and include him in their lineup if active.
