Giroux 'fine,' expected to play Monday: Hextall

Flyers forward went through concussion protocol Saturday @NHL

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux is expected to be in the lineup when the Flyers host the Winnipeg Jets on Monday (7 p.m. ET; TSN3, CSN-PH, NHL.TV).

Giroux left in the third period of a 2-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday after a hit into the boards by Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal, who received a five-minute major penalty for boarding.

On Sunday, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said Giroux "was fine Saturday night and is fine today."

Giroux, who has 21 goals and 62 points in 71 games, went through the concussion protocol and said he felt "pretty good" after the game.

The Flyers (85 points) hold the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference with a game in hand on the Detroit Red Wings (85 points).
