Giroux potted the first two goals of Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Islanders, giving him 25 on the year.

He's now reached 25 goals four times in his career, and with a hot finish, Giroux can at least put a silver lining on this thundercloud of a season for the Flyers by passing his career-high 28 goals (which he's done twice, most recently last year). Philadelphia's captain has nine points in his last nine games.

Giroux gathered a power-play assist in Sunday's triumph over the Penguins.

After closing March on a four-game goal streak, Giroux has been a bit slow out of the blocks in April. Sunday marked his first point in three games this month, and he's attempted just six shots during that span. This kind of minor drought would normally be acceptable for Giroux, but with most leagues neck-deep into the postseason right now, fantasy owners were undoubtedly banking on a little more production from the star winger.

Giroux scored a goal in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Calgary.

This one came on a pretty setup from linemate Jakub Voracek. Giroux's 19 goals this season are below what owners would have liked, but he's top five in the league when it comes to assists. Still, the Flyers' have scored one or fewer goals in five of their last six games, so points may not come easily for Giroux.

Giroux failed to score in Sunday's shootout loss to Ottawa.

Giroux has just one goal in 10 shootout appearances. He still remains a strong play in most fantasy formats, but owners have to be disappointed with his goal production this season. He's on pace for his lowest goal total since the 2009-10 campaign.

Giroux set up two of the Flyers' seven goals in Saturday's triumph over the Red Wings.

Entering Saturday with a four-game losing streak during which it produced only five goals, the Flyers busted out in a huge way Saturday, with Giroux being one of the four multi-point scorers on the afternoon. His lack of production over the previous four games (no goals, one assist, 10 shots on goal) was the primary reason the Flyers' attack took a nosedive, but with Jakub Voracek and Brayden Schenn riding shotgun with him on the top line, Giroux didn't stay suppressed for long. The 27-year-old center has 18 goals and 63 points in 69 games this season.

Giroux assisted on the game-tying goal in Tuesday's overtime loss to Calgary.

Giroux has six points in his last 10 games -- not exactly the kind of numbers owners would expect from one of the league's top players. He's also on pace to fall short of last season's points-total. While he's undoubtedly part of the NHL elite for years to come, the Flyers are entering what seems to be a rebuilding process. As a result, shrewd dynasty owners might consider moving Giroux.

Giroux put up a power-play goal, a power-play assist and two penalty minutes Thursday in a 3-2 loss to Toronto.

After a slump in which he managed just a single point in six games, Giroux's now turned out two-point performances in two of his last three outings. Slumps happen, but he's still one of the best players in fantasy.

Giroux registered a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.Giroux brought a season-high four game pointless streak into Sunday's contest and had gone 11 straight without a goal, but was able to snap both droughts as he opened up the scoring less than five minutes in. Even though his pace has slowed down lately, the 27-year-old still boasts 57 points in 59 contests, and should eclipse the 70-point mark for the fourth time in his career.
