The Philadelphia Flyers will close out the regular season today with a game against the Carolina Hurricanes at the Wells Fargo Center. It’s been quite a year for the Orange and Black who started out a miserable 0-3-0 and fell to 1-7-0 before really starting to turn things around. This season, Claude Giroux went from a guy scoring less than a half a point per game to over a point per game on the year as he will finish with at least 85 points in 82 games. Giroux had three points in yesterday’s win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was the Flyers’ 39th win in either regulation or overtime on the year, and with one final regular season game to play, Giroux is just two points back from being able to tie Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf for second overall in scoring in the entire National Hockey League.
