Captain Claude Giroux and linemates lead Flyers to 7-0 rout of Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - The line of Claude Giroux, Matt Read and Jakub Voracek combined for three goals and 10 points Monday, helping the Philadelphia Flyers break a slump with a 7-0 matinee victory over the New York Islanders.

Giroux scored two goals and added an assist, Read had a goal and two assists and Voracek had four assists. Ilya Bryzgalov was solid in making 19 saves for his first shutout of the season and 30th in the NHL.

Zac Rinaldo scored his first goal of the season, and third of his NHL career, when he scored into a vacated net to make it 5-0 at 3:31 of the third. Danny Briere closed by scoring twice in the third period.

New York couldn't sustain its momentum generated by wins over the rival Rangers and Devils in its previous two games following a five-game losing streak. While the Flyers will soon be heading home, the Islanders will begin a three-game trip at Ottawa on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
