The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning, and all rejoiced. Claude Giroux picked up an assist on their third goal of the game - the one that ended up being the game winner, coming barely a minute after the Flyers took the lead.
It’s a good thing he was so fired up!
Lucky to have teammates that get me fired up before a game. https://t.co/XmhnOBRRSy— Claude Giroux (@28CGiroux) January 8, 2017
The moment in question that got him fired up? Well...

I mean, that’s something that’s guaranteed to wake you up, isn’t it?
Now... who’s the guy that shot it? He is very conveniently not identified.
That doesn’t change a couple of things, though. Number one: Giroux is the master of spin. A teammate nails you in that general area and you call it getting fired up. That’s the best possible way to handle this.
Number two: I can’t stop watching this. It’s hilarious. This is like, football-to-the-groin levels.
EXACTLY like it.
