Claude Giroux Suspended For Game 5 of Flyers Vs. Devils, 2012 NHL Playoffs

The Philadelphia Flyers will face elimination in Tuesday night's Game 5 against the New Jersey Devils. And they'll do so without their leading scorer.

Claude Giroux has been suspended one game by the NHL for a hit on Dainius Zubrus during the second period of Sunday night's 4-2 loss, the team announced on Monday afternoon. Giroux, with eight goals and 17 points already during the postseason, including one goal during the opening period Sunday night, hit Zubrus in the head with his shoulder near the end of the second frame.

The Devils outshot Philadelphia 43-22 in Game 4 to notch their third consecutive win in the series.
