Claude Giroux may not have been flying, but he was certainly "falling with style" when he scored Philadelphia's game-winner on Thursday.

The Flyers forward netted a no-look, backhand shot while falling to the ice in the third period of a 5-4 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It turned out to be the 100th career NHL goal for the 25-year-old from Hearst, Ont. Giroux is brushing off some early-season struggles with 30 points in 35 games, scoring 10 over the past five appearances. 

Watch the goal in the video above. Is it the best you've seen so far this season?
