Bobrovsky Has Plenty of Doutbers and is Doing His Best to Silence Them
…I am a “Bob Believer.” I said it after the Washington loss, and although he validated my thoughts with his performance against Pittsburgh, it would’ve been nice to have seen the Flyers pick him up on the offensive end a bit.
People need to get used to the idea of Bob being in net, quite simply because he is the future at this point as far as goaltenders are concerned, and, unless there’s an unforeseen injury or complete mental breakdown, he’ll be in net for the Flyers’ first playoff game in mid-April. I was extremely encouraged by how he played last night, and I can only hope he’ll carry it over into one of the two games this weekend – assuming that Brian Boucher handles one of the back-to-backs on Saturday and Sunday. Look for Bobrovsky to start against the Islanders – just a gut feeling.
