Flyers’ Giroux punks Penguins fans, fakes a puck toss in warmup (VIDEO)

Prior to Game 5 versus the Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers' star Claude Giroux got candid about his feelings for the Pittsburgh fanbase, admitting, unsurprisingly, he didn't much care for them. "We don't really like the fans here," he said.

To underscore his disdain for the people of Southwest Pennsylvania, Giroux took things a step further during the pregame skate, punking a few Pittsburgh fans down by the glass by making like he was going to toss them a puck, then holding it and skating away like a boss.

"Here you go -- JUST KIDDING LOSERS."

And with that bit of elite dickery, Claude Giroux sacrificed even the remote possibility of ever being liked by Pittsburgh fans. Although I don't think he cares.

Frankly, I'm disappointed Giroux didn't follow this up with a D-X crotch chop while his theme music played, because seriously, this is some WWE-style heel taunting. Those kids are lucky they were protected by glass, or Giroux might have ripped their poster in half while laughing in their faces.
