Watch: Claude Giroux flashes strength, stick skills on filthy goal

Tuesday November 3rd, 2015

Claude Giroux put the team (and Matt Bartkowski) on his back.

Early in the second period of Monday night's game in Vancouver with the Canucks leading 1-0, Giroux showed off his immense strength and skill to tie the game.

Jakub Voracek connected with Giroux at the blue line to send him in one-on-one with Bartkowski, and the Flyers captain put together a remarkable individual effort. He caught the pass, set his edges to completely out-muscle Bartkowski, and finished it off with a forehand-backhand-roof deke on Ryan Miller.

Giroux is off to a slow start offensively this season. He now has four goals and two assists for six points in 11 games.
