Warning: Story contains coarse language

Claude Giroux did not mince words when asked about the Philadelphia Flyers' effort in Tuesday night's 8-2 drubbing at the hands of the San Jose Sharks in his club's home opener.

"I just think we played like shit tonight," the Flyers forward told reporters postgame, according to NHL.com's Adam Kimelman. "The score shows it. We just left our goalie to dry and (Brian Elliott) played a good game, he didn’t deserve that and it’s on us."

Elliott allowed all eight Sharks goals on 48 shots.

The Flyers were outshot by 15 and committed twice as many giveaways (14-7). San Jose also held a 59.57 to 40.43 edge in five-on-five Corsi For percentage, according to Natural Stat Trick.
