Flyers 3 Stars: Gagne Shines In His Return As Flyers Beat Caps

3rd Star: Claude Giroux

Captain Claude struck early again in this one, this time only 23 seconds after the puck drop. Claude would later assist Wayne Simmonds’ power-play goal. As always, Claude was sound in all three zones, creating numerous scoring chances for his line mates.

2nd Star: Ilya Bryzgalov

Decked out in his new “Star Wars” mask, Bryz stopped 22 out of 23 shots. Bryz was sharp all game, almost recording his 31st career shutout. Bryz seems to back on track after being lectured by coach Laviolette on his new found emotional expression: stick throwing.

1st Star: Simon Gagne

He’s back! Simon Gagne tallied the Flyers third goal on the power-play in his first game back in Philly. More importantly, his presence on the ice  sparked the rest of the team. He looked very good on the ice, showing his signature heart, hustle, and talent that made Flyers fans fall in love with him many years ago.
