From ProHockeyTalk:

“His game tonight was monstrous,” Flyers bench boss Peter Laviolette said. “When your best player makes a statement like that … Claude Giroux led us to the second round.”

In a telling anecdote, Laviolette told reporters Giroux asked to start the game –”I don’t know who you plan on starting, but I want that first shift,” he said — then went out and flattened Crosby. It was a move that impressed Laviolette enough to shower Giroux with praise.

“He’s the best player in the world,” Laviolette said.
