Flyers edge Blackhawks 3-2 in OT
Question of the Day
“I honestly was ready to pull out my lineup card,” he said.
Claude Giroux made sure it wasn’t needed.
Giroux received a pass from defenseman Mark Streit and carried the puck over the blue line before letting a shot go from just above the right faceoff circle, beating Antti Raanta high to the blocker side.
“I went on the ice with maybe 15 seconds, 20 seconds, so I knew there wasn’t a lot of time,” Giroux said. “I was just trying to shoot as hard as I could to net. I didn’t really aim, to be honest. I just shot it on net.”
Giroux had previously assisted on a Scott Hartnell goal in the first period for a two-point night.
Asked about his captain’s play over the past two months, Berube said, “He’s been playing well for longer than that, I think. He’s playing hard. He’s really, skating, attacking. He’s leading our team.
“It starts on the bench. He’s vocal. He’s really into all the time. He does a good job of keeping everybody going.”
The Flyers needed that kind of leadership after a poor start.
Chicago opened an offense-filled first period with two goals just 3:51 into the game.
The first came when Andrew Shaw chipped a loose puck near the crease over goalie Ray Emery (23 saves) - the result of a Brayden Schenn turnover at the other end.
Less than 90 seconds later, Duncan Keith, the wide-open recipient of a pass from Jonathan Toews, overpowered Emery with a slap shot from the top of the slot.
But the Flyers rebounded thanks to two goals from Hartnell, one set up by Giroux and the other by the Blackhawks.
