Overseas Flyers Claude Giroux and Danny Briere seem to be staying in form during the lockout, albeit in Germany.

During the NHL lockout, several hockey players decided to stay in shape by playing in Europe, and two of the Flyers — stars Danny Briere and Claude Giroux — joined the same German professional hockey team, Eisbarën Berlin, and made their debut Friday.

Briere and Giroux combined for six points in the 6-5 loss for the Berliners, including a game-tying goal by Giroux six minutes into the third period. Here's what Broad Street Hockey's Travis Hughes wrote about the goal:

With the puck at the top of the faceoff circle, Giroux sniped the far corner, placing the puck just inside the post and over the shoulder of the Kölner goaltender. As reader Devon MacIntrye said on Twitter, watching Giroux in this game felt like being in the Army and having your wife send you pictures. Watching him score was as if they were dirty pictures.

Briere was his usual distributing self, finishing with three assists, including a secondary one on Giroux's goal. Here are some highlights from the game, for the hockey-deprived among you:
