Since it is Friday, let’s have some fun before our blood pressure shoots up this weekend when the Philadelphia Flyers take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.
John Buccigross of ESPN is one of the few respected hockey minds of the network. He projects himself as a hockey enthusiast and wants to share his love of the game with everyone else. Tuesday afternoon, he published a now ‘vlogumn,’ naming the best danglers in the National Hockey League. Bucci Mane named several stars, like Patrick Kane, Pavel Datsyuk and David Perron, until he got to the Flyers’ own Claude Giroux who he dubbed “Prince of Dangledelphia.”
It is no mystery to Flyers fans of Giroux’s “filthy mitts.” We have the privilege to watch him play night in and night out, dishing out sauce at will. So, let’s revisit some of Giroux’s top highlights from this season.
Dangle no. 1: Let’s start out with his most recent work. When Giroux dipped the shoulder and went backhand on Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby I jumped out of my seat and screamed like I was watching B-Rabbit school Papa Doc.
