Philadelphia, PA. -- The Philadelphia Flyers got two points by beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2 on Saturday for their fifth consecutive win, but may have lost the NHL's top scorer in the process.

The victory was overshadowed by the loss of Claude Giroux, the NHL's leading scorer, late in the second period. Giroux fell to his knees trying to make a defensive play in the neutral zone and teammate Wayne Simmonds, who was charging up behind Giroux, tried to leap over him. He didn't quite make it, and his knee appeared to strike Giroux in the side of the head. Giroux did not come out for the third period.
