So at practice yesterday, most of the guys went into the locker room to change gear and such. While that’s going on, Giroux decided to pull a prank on them and went through half the water bottles to twist the caps off. Grossmann was the first victim and not too long after, Gustafsson fell for it. Brayden Schenn fell for it too (even though he saw it happen to Grossmann) and Simmonds was the last one to fall for the joke. It was honestly one of the funniest things I have ever seen the guys do at practice.
While the announcers were busy talking up the intensity of Flyers/Devils games, Giroux and Elias were busy falling in love.

“They see us come in together, shopping for furniture together and they’re, like, two Flyers shopping together? For furniture? And they started laughing. They said, ‘You guys are just like a couple.’ “
