HERE’S HOW GHOST CAN REAPPEAR AS FLYERS SHOOT FOR THE MOON!

His goals-per-game rate is down from 0.27 per game last season to 0.14 this season. His points-per-game rate is down from 0.72 to 0.55. Still, even with his current averages, that’s an 82-game rate where he scores 11 goals and has 45 points. Still, not bad.

The Flyers have noticed that teams are playing him differently this season. Teams know his tendencies. They’re trying to take away his space. That comes when there’s enough time to scout a talented player. For Gostisbehere to return to the levels of production he posted last season, there needs to be growth now from him. He understands that.

“When I get the puck, there’s someone coming at me right away. When I first got called up last year, you could say that wasn’t happening,” Gostisbehere said from the press box of Sunday’s game. “It’s something you have to adjust. Every great player does it. I want to be a better player at doing that.”
