As for Giroux, he may have sealed his fate when he whined about Crosby hacking his wrists in the faceoff dot (which happens frequently - I think Kesler does it every game). No point in risking a potential locker-room rift if you don't need to. Guys need to fall in line and be team first. Maybe Giroux could've done that or maybe he and Sid just don't mix. In any event, Golden Goal always beats haven't-been-there-before.
