Giroux’s Comeback and more


English: Claude Giroux with the Flyers in 2010...

A four point return was apparently in order as Claude Giroux returned to the Flyers after missing four games due to a concussion.  His goal and 3 assists helped lead Philadelphia to a 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars tonight and he looked for all intents and purposes as if he hadn’t missed a single game. Despite missing games, Giroux is still in the Top 10 in Goals, Assists (9th) and Points (1st).

A quick check on Sidney Crosby’s status was met with crickets last I checked.

Sharks’ Havlat out 6-8 Weeks

San Jose got the news they had been bracing for since Saturday night when Martin Havlat injured himself jumping over the Sharks’ bench during their game versus the Oilers. Havlat will miss 6-8 weeks after surgery to repair a partial tear in a hamstring tendon.

Havlat was just finding his stride in the San Jose offense, scoring his second goal of the season and recording  3 points over their past 2 games before the injury.

Sutter suits the Kings? We’ll find out!

New L.A. Kings coach Darryl Sutter hasn’t coached in the NHL in over 5 years, his last gig being with the Calgary Flames in the 05-06 season,  but that didn’t stop him from feeling the excitement of taking the ice for his new team’s practice today, stating “I felt like I was 25 again.” Sutter is known for his tough coaching style and it may be just what the GM ordered to wake up a team that’s fallen well short of expectations.

The 53 year old coach will try to re-inspire a team that many thought would be a top 4 team in the Western Conference. Sutter faces a daunting task in getting the Kings offense up to snuff as they’re last in the NHL at 2.12 GPG and were thoroughly embarrassed most recently against the Red Wings in a laughable 8-2 loss. We’ll get a look at them firsthand tomorrow night against the Pacific Division cellar dwelling Ducks.

      Oh c’mon…during the offseason and in the days leading up to his brief return, we heard about Sid nearly every day. It’s been three days since the Pens have provided an update on him, so a reference to crickets was not completely out of context when taken as a whole
