Medvedev has the stats, but not Hakstol's trust

Since the Luke Schenn trade three weeks ago, the Philadelphia Flyers defense has finally found some stability. Where they previously had too many bodies to handle, Shayne Gostisbehere, Mark Streit, Nick Schultz, and Radko Gudas all have clearly established roles on the team.

Postgame Perspective: A period of potential for Flyers

Seven shots. That was all the Flyers had to show for 40 minutes of play against the Carolina Hurricanes.
