    If Giroux needs a nurse to help with bathing and really anything else for that matter, I will gladly volunteer my services

    By Game 2 of the Devils series, there were rumblings that Giroux had injured both wrists. When he didn’t take 5 consecutive defensive zone face-offs, it was clear something was up.

    Not surprised by the news on Giroux. Saw that one coming in January/February when Hartnell let it slip that he was taking face-offs for the first time since pee-wees because Giroux had a wrist injury.

    We knew the JVR surgery was coming since that hip injury he had awhile back. He hasn’t skated the same since that

    Unfortunately, FOX – the same network that aired an hour’s worth of Brits receiving the Champions League trophy yesterday – pissed down its leg and didn’t show us any of Pat Burrell’s retirement ceremony.
