Claude Giroux's ascension to the top of the NHL's scoring race has been an exciting story for Flyers' fans this season.

Giroux has been an offensive force for the orange and black this season, registering 39 points (16 goals, 23 assists) in 28 games.

Some argue that Giroux has been the NHL's best player, but after a scary incident in Saturday's win over the Lightning, the 23-year-old now has ties to the Penguins' Sidney Crosby.

Chris Stevenson of Winnipegsun.com pointed out Giroux and Crosby are both dealing with issues as a result of collisions with teammates.
