Philadelphia Flyers Discuss Claude Giroux's Recent Slump

He's an All-Star, one of the NHL's best young players and the Philadelphia Flyers' top scorer. But Claude Giroux is also in a slump.

The 24-year old has scored just one goal and five assists in his last 10 games, accumulating a minus-six rating in Philadelphia's four most recent contests. Still, his teammates don't seem worried.

"No matter how good you are, you are going to go through this," Jaromir Jagr said. "I was pretty good and went through it. When you are not the top [scorer], nobody really cares about it. You don't score for 10 games? Nobody knows that.

"But when you're a top guy, they expect you to score every day. I don't worry about it. Nobody should worry about it. The good thing about this team is when our line doesn't score, we're still winning." (via CSN Philly)
