Flyers’ Travis Sanheim, Justin Braun Among NHL’s Best Defensive Pairs

When it comes to the Philadelphia Flyers blue-line, a lot of the focus has been geared towards how well Ivan Provorov and Matt Niskanen have played and Shayne Gostisbehere’s underwhelming performance through the first quarter of the season, and rightfully so. As I wrote about in this article, Provy’s having quite the bounce-back year following a disappointing 2018-19 and has struck a great deal of chemistry alongside ol’ Steady Eddie Niskanen on the top-pair.

Ghost, on the other hand, has struggled mightily in both the offensive and defensive zones through most of the year while finding himself in the press box for two straight games towards the end of November.
