Shayne Gostisbehere is going to haunt the nightmares of the Carolina Hurricanes for a long time. On November 14th, he assisted on the game-tying goal against the Hurricanes. Two weeks later, he ended an overtime against Carolina with a power play tally. And tonight, Gostisbehere proved the closer once again, beating Carolina Eddie Lack two minutes into the overtime session to give the Flyers a 4-3 victory.

2017 is a big year for the NHL. It’s the 100th anniversary of the league, it’s the 100th anniversary of the Toronto Maple Leaves, and it’s the 50th anniversary since the so-called “Expansion Six” came to be in 1967….And new uniforms of course. According to the always excellent Icelethics, citing a Reebok source, the Flyers will be getting a new alternate jersey to honor their 50th anniversary next season.
