It might be the most appropriate timing of a goal this season. On Hockey Halloween Night, the Ghost Bear scored.

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, affectionately known as the Ghost Bear as a play on his last name, scored the first goal of the game against the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh on Sunday. It was Gostisbehere's second goal of the season.

How popular has Gostisbehere/Ghost Bear become? He even has his own T-Shirt, featuring a bear on skates wearing a ghost costume.

Also, now you have a great costume idea if you are still undecided.
