Mmm. Drops of ginger. Somewhere, this chick is losing her shit.
Claude Giroux tops the latest (arbitrary) ESPN Cross-Sport Power Rankings.
After being held scoreless in the Flyers' Game 1 win, Giroux busted out with three goals and three assists in Game 2, setting a Philadelphia franchise record for most points in a playoff game. He followed that up with a goal and an assist in Game 3, putting the Flyers on the brink of a sweep over the favored Penguins.
Giroux had some help, as teammate Danny Briere checks in at No. 7 in the rankings, giving the Flyers two of the three NHL players to make this week's top 10.
Shockingly, a network that virtually ignores hockey placed a hockey player atop it’s list. Giroux finished just a head of Matt Kemp, Andrew Bynum, and Lionel Messi. Danny Briere and his magical playoff hands came in at no. 7.
Nice to see that the self-named worldwide leader recognizes greatness when they see it. And yes, I’m fully prepared for the karma backwash that is headed our way.
