Ghost busted: Flyers fall, Gostisbehere’s streak is over


You know what they say: all good things must come to an end.

In the case of the Philadelphia Flyers, two concluded on Tuesday. Shayne Gostisbehere‘s great 15-game point streak is now over, and the Flyers failed to extend a three-game standings point streak, falling to the Carolina Hurricanes by a score of 3-1.

Cam Ward is the main person to thank for this. He stopped 36 out of 37 shots tonight, including two by “Ghost Bear.”

(Perhaps Ward is pumping up whatever trade value he has, at least in the event that Carolina might want to shop him?)

Gostisbehere’s streak included five goals and 13 assists for a dazzling 18 points, giving him 35 in now 41 games.

Between that production and the considerable workload he’s carrying, it’s probably safe to say that his Calder argument hasn’t ended with his point streak.
