As the puck was about to drop in Boston, the warm-up revealed a shocking truth: The Philadelphia Flyers are making Shayne Gostisbehere a healthy scratch for the second time this season.
Gostisbehere being the Flyers best offensive defenceman, it comes as a surprise to see Dave Hakstol sit the young blueliner again. While many are reproaching his defensive game, the same could be said about every other Flyers defencemen, except maybe the phenomenal Ivan Provorov.
Gostisbehere was the 2015-2016 cinderella story. Coming from nowhere at 22, the 5"11 defenceman scored 17 goals and added 29 helpers for 46 points in 64 games and led the Flyers to a playoff spot.
