As we gear up for a couple of big games tonight,, much of the news
has to do the various injuries the teams are dealing with.

Well,
here’s more.

Claude Giroux, who left Monday’s game against the
Bruins with an injured left shoulder, will play tonight although he is
still not completely healthy. It’s just the nature of teams playing in
the playoffs, and how much hockey players are dedicated to doing
anything necessary to win. From
CBC Sports
:

“I want to help the team win,” Giroux said. “It’s going to be a big
game tonight – probably one of the biggest of the year, and we’ve got to
make sure we’re focused and ready to go.”

Reports from practice were that Giroux wasn’t exactly a spry fella on
the ice, as he took no slapshots and managed just a couple of wristers.
So while his presence is definitely needed for the Flyers, you have to
wonder if he’s going to be hampered too much to be effective. A healthy,
less talented defenseman might be a better choice over an injured
Giroux.
