Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 42 shots in Russia's 5-3 loss to Team Canada in the semifinal of the World Cup of Hockey on Saturday night.
Bobrovsky simply did not get much help from the defense for most of the night as the majority of the play was at his end of the rink. By the end of the second period, he had faced twice as many shots as Canadian netminder Carey Price. He gave Russia a chance, as the game was tied 2-2 after two, but Canada poured it on in the third and scored three more times. Bobrovsky made his most dramatic stop less than a minute into the third when he grabbed a rocket by Brad Marchand with a sliding glove save. Unfortunately, Marchand scored less than 30 seconds later on a second shot and then four minutes, 32 seconds later Bobrovsky gave up the game-winning goal to Corey Perry. Sep 24 - 10:44 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky earned a 21-save shutout as Russia topped Finland 3-0 Thursday afternoon.

So far the World Cup has been an encouraging sign for Sergei Bobrovsky.

Bobrovsky was plagued by groin problems last season and even when he did play, he wasn't particularly impressive with his 2.75 GAA and .908 save percentage. However, playing against elite teams in the World Cup, he posted a 2.93 GAA and .925 save percentage in two exhibition games while representing Russia. Then he was asked to start on back-to-back days against Sweden and the offensive powerhouse that is Team North America to kickoff the tournament proper. Bobrovsky kicked out 27 of 29 shots versus Sweden and held on with an impressive 43 saves on 46 shots versus North America. The Blue Jackets have to hope this is all a sign of things to come for the regular season.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 43 saves to spark Team Russia to a 4-3 triumph over Team North America in World Cup play Monday night.

Bobrovsky was first-rate as the young North American players emerged with several good chances. North American captain Connor McDavid, for instance, had an opportunity to lift his team to a 2-0 lead at 5:23 of the second period when he broke in by himself on Bobrovsky but the Russian goalie stopped the shot with his right pad. Bobrovsky also was sharp when the North American had two-man advantages twice in the third period. Bobrovsky also turned in a good game Sunday in a 2-1 loss to Sweden. In the exhibition schedule, in two games, the Columbus Blue Jackets' netminder posted a 2.93 GAA and a .923 save percentage.

Sergei Bobrovsky turned aside 27 of 29 shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to Sweden.

Bobrovsky was pretty good in this game, despite the fact that his teammates weren't. Both of Sweden's goals were scored in the second period and came just 2:11 apart. It'll be interesting to see if Russia opts to play Bobrovsky in a back-to-back situation. They'll take on Team North America on Monday night.

Sergei Bobrovsky will play between the pipes when Russia begins its World Cup schedule against Sweden on Sunday.

There's been no commitment to use Bobrovsky beyond that contest, but certainly this sets the stage for him to be the squad's starting goaltender for the tournament. He had a 2.93 GAA and .923 save percentage in two exhibition contests.
Sep 15 - 11:01 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky made 29 saves on 32 shots in a 4-3 win for Russia against the Czech Republic on Thursday.

The game was the first of the pre-tournament schedule leading to the start of the World Cup of Hockey. Bobrovsky allowed the first goal of the game and two in the third period, but he managed to record the victory. He is competing with Semyon Varlamov and Andrei Vasilevskiy for the number one job on the Russian team.

The Columbus Blue Jackets chances of taking a significant step forward in 2016-17 are largely tied to the fate of Sergei Bobrovsky.

Bobrovsky was sidelined three times in 2015-16 due to groin injury and wasn't at his best when he was healthy, posting a 2.75 GAA and .908 save percentage in 37 starts. The Blue Jackets are built around the premise that Bobrovsky is a top-tier goaltender though, especially given his $7,425,000 annual cap hit. He's become a wild card though after battling injuries in each of his last two seasons.

Sergei Bobrovsky outplayed Corey Crawford in a glorious come-from-behind 5-4 overtime victory over Chicago on Saturday.

Bobrovsky stopped just 22 of 26 shots, including seven of eight on the kill. But he spotted Chicago a 3-0 lead after the first. Needless to say, the Blue Jackets would not go quietly into that good night and rallied to victory. The veteran netminder ends the nightmarish season with a 15-19-1 record with a .908 save percentage and a 2.75 GAA.
Apr 9 - 10:58 PM

Confirming an earlier note, Sergei Bobrovsky will indeed get the nod in Saturday's season finale.

Through 36 games posted a 14-19-1 record with a 2.72 GAA and a .918 even strength save percentage. He's not a bad play considering Jonathan Toews and Niklas Hjalmarsson will each be sat tonight.
Apr 9 - 5:46 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to get the start on Saturday against Chicago, as Joonas Korpisalo took Friday's match against Buffalo.

It's been a trying season for Bobrovsky who through 36 games posted a 14-19-1 record with a 2.72 GAA and a .918 even strength save percentage. He's not a bad play considering Jonathan Toews and Niklas Hjalmarsson will each be sat tonight.
Apr 9 - 1:23 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky will join Team Russia in Moscow for the IIHF World Hockey Championship this summer.

"I have had lots of time off in the season," Bobrovsky told Portzline. "Unfortunate, yes. So will go. It's always great to represent your country. And to play in front of your own fans, of course, is special." Look for Bobrovsky to return in 2016-17 with a vengeance after losing this season to injuries.
Apr 8 - 10:26 PM

Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky was relatively sharp in the Blue Jackets' 5-1 destruction of the Maple Leafs in Toronto Wednesday night.

Like the Leafs, the Blue Jackets are long gone out of the playoffs and this was a pretty nothing game for them. For Bobrovsky, though, it was significant. He made 27 saves and allowed only a shorthanded goal early in the first period. When he last played, against the New York Islanders on March 31, he allowed four goals on 27 shots and took the loss. Bobrovsky is now 14-19-1 on the season in 36 games played.
