General manager Paul Holmgren was doing his best to think positively, but he knows over the next several days, the Flyers and their fan base will be on edge. Is Claude Giroux OK or is he concussed? "He was evaluated by our doctors and held out for precautionary reasons in the third period," Holmgren said. "We'll evaluate him [Sunday] and see how he is." Giroux, who is the NHL scoring leader with 39 points, took a knee to the head with 2:10 left in the second period of Saturday's game against Tampa Bay. He was struck by his own teammate, Wayne Simmonds. Simmonds was chasing the play up ice with Giroux partially fallen in his path. As Simmonds approached, he attempted to hurdle Giroux yet caught him in the back of the head with his knee.
Now we wait to see if Giroux is OK
