Description: Flyers center Claude Giroux will be able to put up the same kind of numbers from last season even without his linemate Scott Hartnell.
Insight: The Flyers traded Hartnell to the Blue Jackets, so Giroux will need a new winger, but we still expect him to finish with around 90 points. Giroux played in his first preseason game on Tuesday and although he was rusty, his lower body injury did not effect him. The Philadelphia center is a first-round fantasy pick.

Description: Flyers center Claude Giroux finally scored his first goal of the season Saturday in the third period against Edmonton. He also took four shots and was a +2 for the game.
Insight: Giroux has really been pressing and was noticeably frustrated, snapping his stick in half on the bench, when he missed on back-to-back chances early in the game. Hopefully this will open the floodgates for the Flyers captain, who has eight points and a -9 differential in 16 games this season.
 
Cold11/7/2013 9:36:00 PM

Insight: Philadelphia coach Craig Berube shuffled the team's lines again Thursday, moving Jakub Voracek back to the top line with Giroux and Scott Hartnell, but the Flyers were shut out for the second time in the last four games. It's hard to believe Giroux, who produced 66 goals and 217 points in 207 games the previous three seasons, will be this bad for much longer.
