We will be serving crow today. I already had my helping this morning, but now, it’s time for the rest of the local media to eat theirs as the Flyers have pulled themselves from the depths to earn a playoff spot. Up next, Sam Carchidi.
Giroux Snubs Media After Another Loss, November 7:
Whatever the reason, the Flyers’ captain walked out of the WFC and refused to talk to the media after the Flyers fell to 4-10-1.
Instead, the captain left it up to his teammates to explain another dreadful performance, one in which they barely tested 41-year-old goalie Martin Brodeur.
Good captains don’t do that.
Forget about his struggles this season (zero goals, minus-11) on the ice _ struggles that could be connected to his preseason finger surgery after a bizarre golf accident.
Every player goes through a slump. That’s just the nature of the game. It happens.
But there’s no excuse for making your teammates be your mouthpiece.
