Look for Sergei Bobrovsky to sit down with a sports psychologist in the off-season.

Bobrovsky has had problems performing in the post-season and the Blue Jackets want him to talk things over with a psychologist or to work on other things to get him past his perceived mental block. "Sergei is devoted to excellence," said Paul Theofanous, Bobrovsky’s agent. "Every year he looks at himself after the season and says, ‘What can I do better? What can I do smarter? How do I make myself more effective?’ He’s an incredibly driven player and person. Incredibly devoted." Bobrovsky should win the Vezina as the NHL's top goalie as he was 41-17-5 with a 2.06 GAA and a .931 save percentage. The problem has been in the playoffs.

Sergei Bobrovsky has been nominated for the Hart Trophy.

Bobrovsky's competition is Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid. It's pretty rare for a goaltender to win the league's MVP award. Carey Price did it in 2015, but before him no netminder had pulled off that feat since Jose Theodore in 2002. Still, the fact that Bobrovsky is a finalist for the Hart Trophy suggests that he should win the Vezina Trophy for the second time.

Sergei Bobrovsky was not happy with his play in the postseason.

Ya think? Bobrovsky was all-world in the regular season with a 41-17-5 mark to go with a 2.06 GAA and a .931 save percentage. But against the Penguins, Bobrovsky managed to win only one of five games with a 3.88 GAA and a .882 save percentage. "It's a tough way to finish the season; it's disappointing," Bobrovsky said. "But you have either success or experience. So this time, with this playoffs, I had experience and I will learn from it and move on."

As great as Sergei Bobrovsky is during the regular season, the Blue Jackes' goalie has not proven to be a reliable playoff performer.

Bob has a 3-10 career record in the postseason with an .887 save percentage and 3.63 goals-against average. That is well off his 2.47 GAA and .919 career regular-season marks. In fact, among the 34 active NHL goalies who have started at least 10 playoff games, Bob ranks a dismal 33rd in save percentage. That's just not going to cut it.
