VOORHEES, N.J. -- Last season, Flyers center Claude Giroux moved into the house teammate Danny Briere shares with his three sons. This season, Giroux moved into his own home and rookie forward Sean Couturier has moved in.
That trio has accounted for eight of the Flyers' 12 goals in the first two games of the series.
So is there something in the water at the Briere home?
"I don't know," Couturier, who at age 19 years, 128 days old became the youngest player since 1945 to have a hat trick when he scored three in Game 2, said with a laugh. "It's not the food, for sure. We don't eat."
Giroux also had a hat trick in Game 2, after Briere scored twice in Game 1.
"I don't know how to explain it," Briere told NHL.com. "It's pretty cool. It's cool to see both Claude and Sean take over the game [Friday]. You put a special touch on it."
There's been no word on any team-wide sleepover parties at the Briere home.
