Gameday at Ottawa: Questions Will Be Answered On Road Trip

It's been the hot topic the last couple of days: Claude Giroux has finally scored a goal. The next question will be whether or not the struggling captain had awoken from his offensive slumber.

Giroux isn't the only one waking up. The Flyers scored four goals on Saturday, a feat they've only done twice this season. Can they keep it up during this three game road trip? Giroux and the Flyers will answer those question tonight in Ottawa.

First Goal Aside, Claude Giroux Still Struggling

A huge weight was lifted off the shoulders of Claude Giroux Saturday afternoon.

In the third period of a 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers, Giroux took a puck off a turnover and scored, giving the Flyers a 3-1 lead. It was Giroux's first goal in 16 games of the season, ending a 21-game drought that spanned back to last season.

After the game, Giroux described the the moment as a "relief."

The drought was a shock for Giroux, who is considered one of the game's best players. After consecutive seasons of averaging at least a point per game, Giroux established himself as one of the best players in the NHL, but his start to the 2013-14 season had fans thinking otherwise.

Giroux Scores In Flyers Win

The Flyers snapped a few streaks in a big 4-2 win over the Oilers Saturday afternoon.

Claude Giroux scored his first goal of the season, snapping a 21-game drought that dated back to last season and the Flyers put up its first four-goal effort of the year. They also snapped a streak that saw the last 13 goals in the Wells Fargo Center scored by their opponents, a game-time span of 175 minutes, 22 seconds.

Flyers Claude Giroux In "Minor" Car Accident

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux was in a "minor" car accident earlier this morning when his parked car was struck by another car.

Giroux was not in the vehicle. Early reports said that he was in an accident, which frightened many with the 28th anniversary of Pelle Lindbergh's death just two days away.

Devils Suffocate Flyers

If Tuesday was bad, Thursday made things leagues worse.

Two deflected point shots proved to be the difference as the New Jersey Devils defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0. That win evens the season series and may act as some sort of revenge countering a 1-0 Flyers win on Saturday.

In what could be labeled as a perfect road game, the Devils allowed just three clear cut scoring chances all game. Fans continually booed lacking effort from Philadelphia's orange-clad hockey players.

Flyers Squander Lead, Fall to Ducks

A 2-1 lead going into the third period of play vanished into thin air as the visiting Anaheim Ducks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night.

After being outshot by a 16-6 margin in a Ducks-dominated third period, Anaheim's Kyle Palmieri scored on a breakaway and on a beautiful tip-in to put his team on top. Palmieri had just one goal this season coming into tonight.

Flyers Send McGinn to Adirondack; Activate Hartnell

The Flyers have activated left winger Scott Hartnell, who is set to play against the New York Islanders on Saturday.

To make room for Hartnell on the roster and in the lineup, the Flyers have loaned left winger Tye McGinn back to the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL. McGinn has a team-high three goals in four games, but his ice time drastically diminished his last two games.
