Where’s Giroux?

from Ed Barkowitz of the Philadelphia Daily News,

It is clear through three games that the Rangers intend to bump, harass, slash and aggravate Flyers captain Claude Giroux every chance they get. So, how are they doing?

Last night marked the 13th consecutive game Giroux did not score a goal against the Rangers, who took a 2-1 series lead with a suffocating 4-1 victory. Giroux drew a couple of penalties on the Blueshirts and chipped in his second assist of the playoffs. He even got his first shot on goal, on his 62nd shift of the series, but he again did not get one past Henrik Lundqvist.

"He's a good goalie," Giroux said. "We knew that coming in the series, and we just need to keep shooting the puck, and they're going to start going in."

News Of The Day

- David Backes did not skate with the team today but Ken Hitchcock said...

via Mark Lazerus tweet,

"He’s not going to play unless he’s healthy. You never know, he could be skating in another rink. Lot of rinks in Chicago."

So going by Hitchcock's remark, Backes is a game time decision.

Hitchcock also menioned Brenden Morrow is out for the series.  Morrow was seen wearing a walking boot today.

- The Anaheim Ducks announced Teemu Selanne will be a healthy scratch for the Ducks tonight.

Quick Hits

from Stan Fischler of The Fischler Report,

* Right now the Broad Street Bullies are being bullied by the non-Smurf Rangers.

* Put it another way, as I predicted before the series, one major advantage New York has over Philly is in the area of coaching.

* Say this for the Bruins; when they finally get serious against the well-coached Red Wings, it was for the most part; series over.

* Did Brad Marchand fake that "injury?" If so, then shame on the Bruins; times ten.

NHL Short Notes

MONTREAL ADVANCES AFTER LAST-MINUTE WINNING GOAL
Max Pacioretty scored the series-clinching goal with 42.6 seconds left in regulation to propel Montreal into the Second Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 4-3 win over Tampa Bay. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Pacioretty scored the second-latest series-clinching goal in regulation time in Stanley Cup Playoff history.

Mats Naslund scored in the final minute of the third period in Montreal’s 1-0 win over Boston in Game 5 of their first-round series in 1985.
