Claude Giroux Returns From Injury, Scores Four Points For Flyers

Can this be called "Pulling a Sidney Crosby" now? Okay, so Philadelphia Flyers fans probably won't like that too much, but they're certainly thrilled that Claude Giroux scored four points in his first game back in the lineup for the Flyers, as they defeated the Dallas Stars 4-1. Giroux was involved on every goal and his four points put him back on top as the top scorer in the NHL.

Giroux missed four games with a concussion, sustained in an accidental collision with teammate Wayne Simmonds. He was cleared to practice over the weekend, and his return to the ice couldn't have possibly gone any better. He netted his team's first goal in the first period, then assisted on the next three goals as the Flyers bounced back from two straight losses and put in a great performance.
