Today, Paul Holmgren announced that Giroux would be out indefinitely with a concussion. Despite the decent report yesterday, Giroux’s symptoms have gotten worse and he is feeling worse today. The Flyers add Giroux to the list of players already dealing with concussions, which include captain Chris Pronger and rookie Brayden Schenn.
Nineteen year old center Sean Couturier, the Flyers first round draft pick in June, centered Jaromir Jagr and Scott Hartnell for the third period Saturday. Couturier has played well all season both at full strength and on the penalty kill. Couturier is expected to center that line tonight against the Capitals.
