After leaving Saturday night's 5-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning with a blow to the head, Philadelphia Flyers center Claude Giroux is reported to be feeling better Sunday and will evaluated again Monday morning. His return for Tuesday's game against the Washington Capitals is looking good.
Giroux, who tallied two assists in the victory and pushed his NHL-leading point total up to 39, didn't show any concussion like symptons after the game, which featured him being kneed in the head by teammate Wayne Simmonds. After the hit, Giroux did not return to the game, but did talk to reports afterwards and said he was fine.
Philadelphia goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, who also left Saturday's contest with a lower body injury, is also feeling better and is expected to play Tuesday night.
