Video: Claude Giroux is Fine After a Skate Nearly Sliced Through His Leg

The Flyers lost again, so they’re in mid-year form. But it was a skate across the back of Claude Giroux’s leg that is the story.

Justin Faulk’s skate blade came down in the general area of Giroux’s left Achilles. G appeared to be in a lot of pain and was carried off the ice, but the cut was only surface deep and just required a few stitches. He may have been saved by the cut-resistant Kevlar socks he wore beneath his equipment. Whatever the case, he expects to play on Saturday.

Frank Seravalli has G’s version of events.
