Stat Line Of The Night — 2/16/12 — Claude Giroux

After watching the Sabres get out to an early 2-0 lead, the “Giroux Show” began, as he helped set up five of the Flyers’ following seven goals – all unanswered – to help his club cruise to the easy 7-2 victory against the same Buffalo team that they eliminated during the first round of last season’s playoffs (Giroux had nine points during that seven-game series).  Claude’s five assists in a single game are a career-high for the 23-year-old, and it also tied the NHL season-high, which was set by the Edmonton Oilers’ Ryan Nugent-Hopkins on November 19.

Giroux’s now finds himself sitting in second in the NHL in points (67), and he is just two points behind the league-leader, Evgeni Malkin.  A five-point night will do that, and it will also earn you “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, February 16, 2012.
