Claude Did That G Thing Again


I’m not even gonna pretend that I didn’t turn off the game after two periods when it was 3-dead in favor of the Blue Jackets. Had Anchorman and a freshly shaken daiquiri on the ready to prepare me for the new movie this weekend. The game was over. It was finished. Core 4 member and its minutes stenographer, Sam Carchidi, had already declared a premature BJ victory:

More like: Good night, Sweet Princes… because I’m pretty sure Gracie is fun Flyers ice girl. But whatever. The game was over and I was on my couch ready to get drunk and laugh. And then, all of a sudden, sparks started shooting out of my phone:

Wake up G !!!

5 goals in 3rd g with sick game winner

calling it goal of the year

Oh shit. He did that G thing, didn’t he?

He did.

It was 3-0 Blue Jackets, and then: Jakub from Giroux (1), Coburn (2), [Blue Jackets goal], Gustaffasssffassfffsssooooffson from Giroux (3), Giroux (4), Giroux again (5).

From the Flyers’ city-leading PR department:

Claude Giroux posted his sixth career game of four points or more with his two goals and two assists.   His last game was Feb. 16, 2012 when he recorded a career high five points vs. Buffalo (5A).   It was the fourth of four games in the 2011-12 season where he posted four or more points in a game.  It’s the first time in Giroux’s career that he posted four points in a single period.

Giroux now has a five game scoring streak, with four goals and six assists for 10 points in the stretch.

After the game, Scott Hartnell on his captain:

“Getting above that .500 mark, it didn’t look like it was going to be tonight. But I think G put all 20 of us on his back and led us to a big victory.”

That he did, Scottward. That he did.

If a Natural Hat Trick is three consecutive goals, then what is Geezus Christ, oh he little Ginger god, coming down off the cross just in time to celebrate his birth and carrying the weight of his team – Paul Holmgren’s foolish sins – on his back en route to four points, including the tying and winning goals, and his 100th career goal, all within the span of 30 human minutes? It’s a Christmas miracle for your Homeboy. And don’t question it. Don’t doubt it. Just embrace it. Just believe it. Just… wear it?


Happy birthday, Claude.

  1. Hands down the best player in the world. The magic he does against the blue jackets, panthers , islanders, flames is mind boggling. Probably had 2 guys blowing him last night

  2. Sorry, lucky goal…he wasn’t even trying to do that and just threw it at the net. Let’s not forget this was against one of the worst teams in the league. Who’s that goalie?

    And before me dig out a bitch I have ta’ find a contraceptive
    You never know she could be earnin’ her man,
    And learnin’ her man, and at the same time burnin’ her man
    Now you know I ain’t wit that shit, Lieutenant
    Ain’t no pussy good enough to get burnt while I’m up in it
    (yeah) Now that’s realer than real-deal Hartnell
    And now all you hookas and ho’s know how I feel
    Well if it’s good enough to get broke off a proper chunk
    I’ll take a small piece of some of that funky G stuff

  4. DJ TONKA, Dat Shit is off the HOOK!! I love G THANG. Shiiiiiiiiiiiitttt.. Only think that would have made dat game better was if ROSEHILL or RONOLDO fucked somebody UP!!!

  5. Flyers will be in the Stanley Cup Finals this season beating Pittsburgh in conference finals.
    Penguins always choke against Flyers. Why should this year be any different.
