Flyers captain Claude Giroux's car was hit while parked in a parking lot, but the center said he was not in the auto when the incident happened Friday night.

Giroux will try to snap a 21-game goal-less streak Saturday afternoon against Edmonton.

The Flyers, off to their worst offensive start in franchise history, will attempt to snap out of their scoring funk against an Oilers team that is allowing a league-high 3.82 goals per game.

The Flyers are averaging an NHL-low 1.47 goals per game.
