Voila_Capture541In Grantland’s daily About Last Night segment, writer Spike Friedman gets satirical with Claude Giroux:

In a fierce rivalry game, Brayden Schenn scored two goals as the Philadelphia Flyers continued their turnaround with a 2-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. “It’s a heartwarming rags-to-riches story. I mean, we’re the Philadelphian dream incarnate,” said Flyers captain Claude Giroux of his team’s recent upswing, which began after a recent goalie brawl. “The Philadelphian dream, of course, being the one about a questionable bunch of dudes starting a meaningless fight, wounding and angering our enemies, and then drawing strength from our collective willingness to inflict pain on others.”

I laughed… but then realized the Flyers are 4-1 since Ray Emery assaulted a man nearly two weeks ago. I’d hate to encourage that sort of thing, but, um, it worked?
