Two years later, Giroux is in his second full season as Philadelphia's captain, and perhaps more than any other player in the league his success or lack of it drives his team. Going into this weekend's home-and-home series against the arch-rival Penguins, the Flyers are eight games under .500 when Giroux doesn't record a point and 25-13-3 when he does. "He's clutch like that," Flyers linemate Jakub Voracek said. "Not many players have that." "He's the best player on our team, so I think it's only natural if he's going the rest of us are going," Simmonds said.
