Flu-ridden Giroux 'probable' to play tonight

Flyers forward Claude Giroux has the flu and is "probable" for tonight's game at Pittsburgh, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Giroux was spotted at Philadelphia International Airport this morning; the rest of the team flew to Pittsburgh last night after the Flyers' 6-2 win over Toronto. Giroux remained behind an extra night because of the flu.
