Claude Giroux scored with seven seconds remaining, bringing the Flyers within a goal, but it would be too late. The Capitals sealed the win four seconds later with an empty-netter.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will gladly take the tally, which was Giroux's 14th of the season. It broke a six-game scoreless drought, dating back to Dec. 27. Giroux has been held off the scoresheet in five of the last six games. Don't let that discourage you at all from starting him. He should be locked in your lineup.

Fantasy Impact: Giroux had 73 points a season ago, so there more than likely will not be many games with zero points. Giroux had three shots on goal and three shots miss the net, so at least he is getting chances. He blew a golden chance in the first period, as he was awarded a penalty shot after being hooked on a breakaway. However, he could not convert. The Flyers next game is on Saturday on the road versus the Florida Panthers.
