Biggest game of the year? No, not even close. The biggest games of the year were weeks ago when this club had chances to go on a roll and they couldn't do it. The club at this point is just going through the motions. Look at everyone out there. They're defeated before they even hit the ice. Laviolette has lost the group.
As for Giroux not having a shot on goal, it's clear that something is wrong with his play this year. Is he injured? Maybe. Is the weight of the captaincy wearing him down? Possibly. Is it that Laviolette overuses Giroux? Maybe. We can all sit here and speculate as to what it might be, but I'm not going to pin Game 39 as the reason why the Flyers don't make the playoffs. Anyone else who considered this the biggest game of the year needs to have their head examined. The Flyers are just simply not a good club this year and we're seeing it. To blame Giroux for this mess of a year is absurd.
