Giroux, Burns go in 13th round
25. Claude Giroux, Philadelphia, C/W (Team Staal)
26. Brent Burns, Minnesota, D (Team Lidstrom)


Giroux is having a big season for the Flyers, scoring goals in all situations. Clearly Staal is thinking about special teams with this selection.

As for Burns, Lidstrom plays against him enough in the Western Conference that he felt he had to go with him, but I'm sort of surprised he didn't go with the Swede D-man on the board, Erik Karlsson.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
