Giroux Has Coming Out Party – Flyers Take Game 3

Claude Giroux put on a show Sunday as the young rising star totally redeemed himself after taking a bad penalty at the end of Game 2 which really cost the Flyguys Friday night.

Jeff Carter opened the scoring fest for the Flyers early Sunday with a beautiful sweeping backhand shot 3 minutes into the game, and Richards made it two goals on two shots for the Flyers two minutes later.

Pittsburgh battled back and tied the game up early in the 2nd period off the stick of Evgeni Malkin, who landed his second goal of the game.  The first came with 10 seconds left in the first period on a savvy play by Maxim Talbot to center to the puck to a streaking Malkin for the one timer.

With the crowd silenced after the equalizer, the Flyers roared back on the heels of the rookie Giroux.  Danny Briere stole a rebound off Marc-Andre Fleury’s pad and fed it across the ice to a streaking Giroux, who punched in the puck for a 3-2 lead. Playing short-handed midway though the second, Giroux controlled the puck behind the net. The Penguins defense swarmed him, but the former first-round pick was able to fend off Kris Letang and slip the puck to Gagne. Gagne scored the short-handed goal to make it 4-2 and the Flyers never looked back going on to win 6-3.

Flyers Remain Winless

Pascal Dupuis scored on a slap shot from along the edge of the left circle with 10.8 seconds left in overtime as the Penguins kept the Philadelphia Flyers winless after beating them 3-2 on Tuesday night.

The Flyers tied it at 2 with goals from Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne in the final minute of the second period only to fall short in OT.  The FlyGuys have dropped their first three games for the first time since the labor dispute-shortened 1995 season.
