Like Domonic Brown, Claude Giroux will benefit from being on a team with a lot of established players who know the ropes. The Flyers have a 25-year-old captain in Mike Richards who will be expected to shoulder the heavy lifting. Giroux has been a big-time point generator at every level. During his rookie season with the Gatineau Olympiques in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, he had 39 goals and 103 points in just 69 games. The Flyers drafted him 22nd overall in 2006, and he proceeded to post two more hundred-point seasons in juniors, including 112 points in 63 games in his second season for Gatineau.

Claude Giroux was snubbed. Again. With hockey in a deep freeze, thanks to the NHL's second labor stoppage in 8 years, the Flyers' star - whom many consider to be Philadelphia's most electrifying athlete - dropped to fifth place in the Daily News' annual Sportsperson of the Year balloting. In other words, Giroux finished further back in his own city among sports writers than he did (fourth) in Hart Trophy voting last season for hockey's Most Valuable Player award. Full disclosure: This Flyers beat writer voted for Giroux as No. 1 on his ballot, ahead of Mike Trout, Doug Collins, Carlos Ruiz and Bill O'Brien.

AFTER SUSTAINING a neck injury while playing in Germany on Nov. 17, Flyers star Claude Giroux was back on the ice in Ottawa on Wednesday. Giroux, 24, participated in a 90-minute skate at the Carleton Ice House in Ottawa, where he makes his summer home. "I skated for the first time today," Giroux said in a message to the Daily News. "It was a slow skate. Just trying to get the legs going again. " Giroux is not fully recovered and said he had "no idea" when he would be back at 100 percent.

The concussion changes the perception, just a little. Even if his recovery is complete, it is hard to forget a period of December days when just a slow turn on the ice left him feeling sick. That was Claude Giroux's existence as the year neared its end. That the feeling passed is to be celebrated. He can only hope that that the healing is complete, and that 2011 will be remembered for what it was. That is, the year he became a star. That is the word: star. As he sat down with his concussion, Giroux led the National Hockey League in points.

The player known to his teammates as "G" will wear the "C. " Star center Claude Giroux was named the 19th captain in Flyers history, the club announced Tuesday night. Giroux, 25, replaces the injured Chris Pronger, whose career is likely over because of post-concussion syndrome. All week, players, coaches, and management types took turns praising Giroux's leadership and saying he was ready to assume the captain's role, so it became a foregone conclusion before the team made the announcement.

CALGARY, Alberta - For most, the biggest item on the Flyers' wish list this summer is a stud left winger to skate alongside Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek. Ron Hextall joked last week no one was going to wave a magic wand and say, "OK, here's a 25-year-old Brett Hull, thank you very much. " No, that will not happen. But what if the Flyers already have a suitable first-line left winger who can bury goals from the feathery passes off the sticks of the team's two stars? His name is Michael Raffl.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The Flyers' road woes continued Tuesday night in Vancouver, and once again they failed to give goalie Steve Mason much offensive support. Right winger Alex Burrows scored two third-period goals 17 seconds apart, snapping a 1-1 tie and sparking the Canucks to a hard-earned 4-1 win at Rogers Arena. It was the Flyers' seventh straight road loss (0-5-2); they slipped to 9-19-9 on the road, where they haven't won since a 2-1 victory in Buffalo on Feb. 15. Mason (31 saves)

OTTAWA - There are a multitude of reasons the Flyers will miss the playoffs for just the third time in the last 20 seasons. At the top of the list: the team's road miseries, which continued Sunday night with a 2-1 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre. Bobby Ryan, the pride of Cherry Hill, was the only player to score in the shootout as Ottawa continued its impressive run toward a possible playoff berth. The Senators, 11-1-1 in their last 13 games, moved to within five points of Boston for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot.

When the Flyers have played on the road this season, things have gone so badly for Steve Mason that even when he registers a shutout he is the losing goalie. It happened Thursday in St. Louis, where Mason put together another sensational performance but once again was the victim of the Flyers' offensive ineptitude in a 1-0 shootout loss. Mason, who is among the NHL leaders in save percentage (.925, tied for fifth) and goals-against average (2.26, 10th), has more road shutouts (two)

ST. LOUIS - Speaking to a group of reporters Wednesday, general manager Ron Hextall said he would have to evaluate the Flyers' leadership group in the offseason because of the team's "inconsistencies. " On Thursday, coach Craig Berube conceded that the Flyers have missed Kimmo Timonen's calming influence on the ice and in the locker room, but he said he was satisfied with the leadership group, which includes captain Claude Giroux and alternates Mark Streit and Wayne Simmonds. "I think G and the leaders have done a good job, to be honest with you," Berube said before the Flyers faced St. Louis.

ST. LOUIS - Talk to those closest to Claude Giroux and they'll tell you that the person in front of the camera and front-and-center for questions after a gut-wrenching loss isn't always the same away from the microphones. Like, that time last April, a family member caught a ride home from Giroux after a Stanley Cup playoff loss the Rangers. The entire 15-minute trip, from South Philadelphia to Center City, Giroux slammed his fists on the steering wheel and cursed up a blue streak - in French.

The Flyers' much-maligned defense has played better lately, but their offense has not responded, causing the team to fall out of the playoff race. "We're not finishing, not executing - especially me," said second-line center Sean Couturier after Wednesday's practice in Voorhees. "I've been having a lot of quality scoring chances lately and haven't been finishing. . . . I think all year, we've been through stretches where we're not executing, we're not finishing. It's not always about competing.

The Flyers have been outshooting and getting better chances than opponents recently, but their inability to finish the scoring opportunities is a major reason they are still five points behind Boston for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot. The Flyers have left some critical points on the table, and they are in virtual must-win situations Thursday against powerful St. Louis at the Wells Fargo Center and Saturday afternoon in Boston, which has two games in hand. In their last five losses - to Columbus, Buffalo, Carolina, Toronto, and Calgary - the Flyers have had a lopsided shots advantage in four of the games.

IT . . . Is . . . Alive . . . The Skating Dead, the label often attached to this town's hockey team less than a month ago, are not only moving forward, they are poised to climb over a numbed body or even two in the next couple of weeks. Their playoff chances reduced to state lottery-winning percentages just a month ago, the Flyers added four more points to their mounting total over the weekend with victories over two playoff-bound teams, including the NHL's current top team, the Nashville Predators.

STRUGGLING dressing rooms in hockey are filled with words about hope and belief. Probability and percentages? These are dirty words, to be replaced quickly by pledges of effort and faith in each other. So when Jakub Voracek was asked about his team's chances upon his return from the NHL All-Star break and said he had done the math and the math wasn't good, it could easily have been perceived as a white flag. "We've got, what 45 points?" he said then. "To me, we're going to need 94, 95 points.
