VIDEO: Claude Giroux's Game 4 Hit On Dainius Zubrus To The Head

The Philadelphia Flyers are only down 3-2 in Game 4 on Sunday, but it feels like they are getting blown out. The New Jersey Devils are outshooting the Flyers 34 to 12 on the night, and as a whole have looked more like the team down 2-1 in a second round 2012 NHL Playoff series, not up.

What's worse is that the Flyers' best player this postseason, Claude Giroux, may have earned himself a Game 5 suspension when he launched his shoulder into the head of Dainius Zubrus late in the second period to put the Devils on a powerplay.

It was a dumb move by Giroux for certain. Zubrus had long let go of the puck, and in replay it appears that Giroux targeted the head. Zubrus was able to return the Devils' bench for the third period, however. If the league is really considering a suspension, the fact that no injury was sustained should play in Giroux's favor.
