Florida’s power play resembles Flyers’; Claude Giroux, Panthers fall

Claude Giroux, the former Philadelphia Flyers captain, has seen this before. A power play that is beyond awful; a weak penalty kill that spelled the difference. If Giroux didn’t know better, he probably felt he was still in Philadelphia and not the Sunshine State. Special teams killed Florida in...

Stanley Cup Playoff blog: OTs, playoff Claude Giroux, and an iconic theme

It's inevitable. At some point in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, you're gonna need some coffee. It happened right away this year. The Rangers and Penguins needed three overtimes to decide the opening game of their series.

Panthers' Claude Giroux: Practicing Monday

Giroux (rest) took part in Monday's practice session, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. Giroux slotted into a spot on the second line with Jonathan Huberdeau and Sam Bennett after having sat out the Panthers' last two games.

If Florida makes a deep run into the playoffs, the addition of Giroux could go down as the best move at the trade deadline this year.

He had played 597 NHL regular-season games and 37 more in the playoffs before the Columbus Blue Jackets traded him to the Lightning at the deadline. He walked into a locker room filled with newly fitted Stanley Cup rings from 2020, having never played for one yet in his career -- no pressure, new guy.
