Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux added to his long highlight reel of stunning shootout goals Tuesday night in a 4-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks. The Flyers remain winless after four games (0-2-2) despite Giroux’s ridiculous goal. He was the only Flyer to score in the shootout.
Giroux dazzled the crowd at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia when he broke in on Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen and undressed him with a nifty backhand-forehand-backhand deke. The Philadelphia forward is one of the NHL’s most creative players one-on-one with the goalie. Here is another crazy goal he scored in 2012 against the Toronto Maple Leafs:
Here he is again in 2013 against the Islanders’ Evgeny Nabokov:
But above any goal he’s scored for the Flyers, Giroux is most loved in Philadelphia for this hit on Sidney Crosby of the arch-rival Pittsburgh Penguins:
