WATCH: Claude Giroux scores ridiculous shootout goal in win over Islanders

Flyers NHL

It’s amazing how bad the Flyers have been in shootouts over time, especially considering that Claude Giroux has been on the team since the 2008-09 season.

The captain has scored some doozies, like this one and this one and this one.

Maybe this year will be different for the Flyers in the all-important skills competition. The Orange and Black are now 2-0 in shootouts after defeating the New York Islanders 3-2 on the terrible ice at Barclays Center tonight. The only goal in this particular shootout was this beaut by Giroux:

Dear lord.

The Flyers, who again came from behind (this time, thanks to a tying goal with 58 seconds left from Matt Read), now sit at 6-5-1 on the season.
