  • Physical play on Giroux fuels Flyers to OT win over Jets

    CSN Philly "The more Dustin Byfuglien hit Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn, the angrier the Flyers got.

After going with a goalie rotation for the past..." December 20

  • Jets hold on to ruin Bruins' night

    Winnipeg Sun "It turns out Dustin Byfuglien might need that bubble wrap after all.
