The difference between Claude Giroux and other great athletes. He is probably one of the best TEAM players I have ever seen.

While some guys who are great tend to be a ball hog (or puck hog as the case may be).

This is a guy who makes everyone around him better. Last night after after missing four games with a concussion, he had one goal and three assists. He makes the game fun to watch and it’s not the same without him.

For anyone wondering if Giroux would be the same post-concussion, last night’s 4-1 victory over Dallas is your answer. The team gets two points for the win and Giroux four, boosting his league-leading point total to 43.

Just how much is this team behind him? Well, he got hit twice last night. The second time by Steve Ott. So, as the Stars are coming off the ice last night, who gives him a healthy shove? Coach Peter Laviolette (see video).

That is teamwork!
