For the Flyers, recent history at the Garden has been more about thorns, less about roses. Entering Wednesday's second-place showdown against the New York Rangers, the Flyers have lost seven straight at Madison Square Garden since 2011, getting outscored, 28-8. "It's a tough building. I don't know what it is about it," center Claude Giroux said after Tuesday's practice in Voorhees. "We'll have to make sure the first period is our best period and go from there. " The Rangers scored three goals in the first 9 minutes, 24 seconds in their 4-1 win over the visiting Flyers on Jan. 12. The Flyers are coming off Monday's 3-2 loss to Los Angeles.

MARK STREIT held the puck on his stick at the blue line and tried to dance around a defender. Seemingly all 19,876 inside the Wells Fargo Center were screaming "Shooooot!" in unison - with 7, then 6, then 5 seconds on the clock - yet none of the Flyers on the ice seemed to hear them. Streit dished to Jake Voracek on his right, who tried to sidestep one sliding Los Angeles King, before threading a cross-ice needle to the waiting stick of Claude Giroux. Sensing that time was running out, Giroux shoveled a half-hearted attempt at Jonathan Quick.

Besides acquiring Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn, and Jake Voracek, there was another reason the Flyers made the stunning 2011 trades of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards: They wanted to make Claude Giroux the team's centerpiece. Given more ice time and more responsibility, Giroux has flourished in that role. Entering Monday's game against Richards, Carter and the visiting Los Angeles Kings, Giroux was fourth in the NHL with 74 points. He established a career high in points (93) and goals (28)

MIKE RICHARDS and Jeff Carter come back to Philadelphia for the first time as a duo and it is impossible not to look back, and to wonder. It is a waste of time, of course, the wondering - but sometimes you can't help yourself. What if they had not been traded? What would this team look like? "I think it's a long time ago," Claude Giroux was saying. "A lot has changed since. I think there's only four guys on the team who were there in 2010. So a lot has changed. We have a new look in the Flyers' organization.

THE QUESTION, posed last week on "Philly Sports Talk," was simple in nature. Who is more responsible for the Flyers' success: Craig Berube or Claude Giroux? Off the cuff, my choice was Giroux. The thought: Coaches don't score goals - and it isn't often in professional hockey that coaches win games. Giroux has scored more points - 54 in his last 39 games - than any player in the league since early December. With his name percolating in the race to join Sidney Crosby as a Hart Trophy finalist, Giroux has played out of his mind over the last few months to turn the Flyers from a playoff joke to a playoff lock.

THE PUCK was spinning on its edge like a top. It began to curve right as it hit the ice after Wayne Simmonds flicked it from near the Flyers bench. Simmonds knew his last-minute prayer had an outside shot of broaching the empty Dallas net - before being steered wide by a Stars defender - but he tracked the puck with interest. He was inches away from his second career hat trick. "I saw it curving and sliding, I didn't think it actually had a chance," Simmonds said, laughing.

You can see it in Claude Giroux's eyes and in the way he practices and warms up, Scott Hartnell said. It is even evident in the way Giroux plays kickball in the arena tunnel before games. The Flyers captain wants to win in everything, Hartnell said. And that is something Hartnell said you need in a leader. In his second year as captain, Giroux has grown to lead by example and by his comments. "Guys will follow him to the Ben Franklin Bridge and jump off if he is going to lead the way," Hartnell said.

If you want to know how much you've grown, it's always good to stand next to one of the tall kids, and in the NHL these days they don't stand any taller than the Chicago Blackhawks. They are the team that has won two of the last four Stanley Cups, including the one four years ago against the Flyers on that odd-angled overtime shot by Patrick Kane at the Wells Fargo Center. They are the team that is about to put up a 100-point season for the fourth time in six years. The only reason they didn't last year was because it was a strike-shortened season, so they had to settle for 77 points, the most in the NHL. They are fast, they are deep, and they will be among the favorites again when the NHL's 16-team tournament begins next month.

TIME WAS running out. Claude Giroux scooped up the puck just inside the Flyers' blue line with just 9.7 seconds left in overtime - and a daunting shootout against the NHL's No. 1 offensive team looming a few ticks away. Giroux, emphatically inserting his name into the Hart Trophy race, wasn't about to let an all-important match for the Flyers come down to a game of chance. "I knew there wasn't much [time] left, from the timeout we had just taken," coach Craig Berube said.

The captain put the Flyers on his back Tuesday night. Claude Giroux, the NHL's leading scorer for the last three-plus months, scored on a drive from the top of the right circle with 4.2 seconds left in overtime, lifting the Flyers to a riveting 3-2 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. With a sellout crowd watching at the earsplitting Wells Fargo Center, Giroux enabled the Flyers to come all the way back from an early 2-0 deficit. Since Dec. 11, Giroux has 51 points, tops in the NHL, and the Flyers are 18-2-1 this season when he scores a goal.
