Shayne Gostisbehere was a minus-two in his return to the Flyers lineup after being a healthy scratch Saturday.
It was the second time this season that Gostisbehere was sent to the press box. He has four goals and 19 points in 43 games this season. "You can obviously let it rattle you and let it set you back, but I'm going to go out there and do whatever it takes to help the team," he said. "If that's me being in the press box, that's me being in the press box. I'm here to help the team in any way possible." He is still fantasy worthy but Gostisbehere is not the offensive machine he was last season when he finished third in Calder voting with 17 goals and 46 points in 64 games. Jan 16 - 8:35 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere and Nick Schultz will be scratched against the Bruins on Saturday afternoon.

Surprise to see The Ghost Bear on the pine for the second time this year, but with the Flyers in a tailspin this may be a way of sparking them. Through 42 games, he has posted four goals and 19 points along with 51 blocks. Schultz has picked up four helpers along with 22 hits and 29 blocks in 13 games.

Shayne Gostisbehere has been dealing with a badly swollen right hand.

We already knew Gostisbehere had an injured hand, but the severity of his injury wasn't clear. He didn't play on Sunday and remains questionable for Wednesday's contest. With Mark Streit (shoulder) now also sidelined, if Gostisbehere can't play on Wednesday then Nick Schultz is projected to draw into the lineup.

Shayne Gostisbehere suffered a bone bruise Saturday.

While Gostisbehere missed some action, he returned for the third period. The worry here is that it will swell up Saturday night and Sunday morning and it will not allow him to play Sunday in Detroit. If he is unable to go, you will know why. Gostisbehere has 16 points in 29 games but more was expected out of him after he had 46 points in 64 contests in his rookie season last year.

Shayne Gostisbehere has listed his streak of assists to four games with a helper during Saturday's 4-2 win over the Stars.

Make it a dozen helpers and 16 points so far this season through 29 games, with six helpers over his last seven games. Seems like that benching taught him quite a bit.

Shane Gostisbehere scored one goal and had an assist on another as the Philadelphia Flyers dropped a 5-4 decision to the Montreal Canadiens.

This loss snapped a three-game winning streak during which Gostisbehere scored only one goal. As he rose to the challenge Saturday night goalie Michal Neuvirth was just a little too loose in the net. To win, everything has to click at the same time.
