Gostisbehere picked up an assist in a 6-2 victory against the Sabres on Saturday. The 25-year-old has registered some much-needed assists in each of the last two games. Prior to Thursday, Gostisbehere had gone five straight games without a point, and during that time, he posted a minus-7 rating. In addition to two assists, Gostisbehere has recorded a plus-3 rating in the last two games. Still, he has a long way to go, as he's dug himself a minus-12 hole. Gostisbehere also has three goals and 13 points in 27 games.
Gostisbehere has gone cold again with just two assists and a minus-4 rating in the last six games. The good news, though, is he is getting shots to the net. He has 19 shots on goal in the last six games, perhaps indicating it's only a matter of time until Gostisbehere gets going again. Owners can find comfort in the fact that once he does break through, the scoring will likely come in bunches. Gostisbehere only has 11 points in 22 games, and yet, he's tallied points in back-to-back games twice.
Gostisbehere set up the tying goal and scored the winner in overtime, helping the Flyers earn a 5-4 win over Arizona on Thursday. The bad news for Gostisbehere is that there are no more matchups with the Coyotes, as he has four points against them and five against everyone else. He's played well this week, but we'd wait to see him do it against someone other than Arizona before getting too excited about Ghost.
Gostisbehere fashioned a power-play goal and a 5-on-5 assist in Monday's 5-2 road win over the Coyotes. This was only the third time in the last 10 games that Gostisbehere has made his way onto the scoresheet, but the silver lining is that he's really making the most of his power-play time. Ghost has shown up for two goals and three assists on the man advantage through 15 games, and only two of his seven points this season have taken place in 5-on-5 situations.
Gostisbehere hasn't recorded a point and owns a minus-3 rating in the last five games. The 25-year-old is off to a rough start, and it's only gotten worse in the last two weeks. It's still a small sample size, but Gostisbehere is on pace for the lowest point total of his career and owns a minus-8 rating, which is second-worst in the NHL. Part of his struggles are definitely connected to the Flyers, who are 4-7-0, but even still, Gostisbehere has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments on the blue line during the opening month.
