Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 21-22 stops in the season opener over the Buffalo Sabres, Thursday night.

No opening night jitters for Bob. He was poised an in position all night long, beaten just once by Zemgus Girgensons' fantastic individual effort to tie the game at one late in the second period.

Flyers chairman Ed Snider said that Sergei Bobrovsky was dealt by Philadelphia because at the time, it didn't look like they could re-sign him.

Then Flyers GM Paul Holmgren dealt Bobrovsky to Columbus in 2012 for a second round pick and two fourth round selections. That trade looks particularly bad for Philadelphia given that Bobrovsky has had two great seasons with Columbus and has won the Vezina Trophy. Of course, the reason the Flyers dealt him was directly tied to Ilya Bryzgalov's nine-year, $51 million contract with Philadelphia. "Not only did we make a mistake on the long-term contract, but Bobrovksy's a young guy and he told Paul, 'As soon as my contract's out, I'm out of here,'" Snider said. Bobrovsky would have been a restricted free agent, but he threatened to go to the KHL if it came to that. The Flyers later bought out Bryzgalov's contract.

Sergei Bobrovsky got better and better as last season wore on, and proved in the final stretch of the season that his Vezina Trophy in 2013 was no fluke.

The 25 year-old posted goals against averages of 2.60 and 3.00 in October and November of 2013, but then rediscovered his game and kept his GAA below 2.42 in each month until the post-season. The Russian star will need to overcome a poor career playoff record to help the Blue Jackets take the next step. But besides the playoffs and an underwhelming 2011-12 season which caused the Flyers to trade him, Bobrovsky has put up elite stats in his three other years of NHL experience and is showing no signs of taking a dive in 2014-15.

Sergei Bobrovsky earned a 27-save shutout in Russia's 5-0 victory over Switzerland in the 2014 World Championship.

Russia is seeking a silver lining after its disappointing showing in the Olympics. Bobrovsky led the Blue Jackets to the playoffs by posting a 2.38 GAA and .923 save percentage in 58 games this season.
May 9 - 1:10 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky dug his team into a big hole they were unable to get out from in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Penguins.

Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 28 shots in the defeat, which knocks the Blue Jackets out of the playoffs in six games. Though the result is a disappointing one for the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, the season should be viewed as a success in its totality.
Apr 28 - 9:57 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky gave up two goals on 50 shots in Columbus' 3-1 Game 5 loss against Pittsburgh on Saturday night.

If it weren't for Bobrovsky, this one could've been much more lopsided on the scoresheet. The Russian netminder was fantastic in this game, as the Penguins peppered him with shots from all angles, scoring their two goals on him from the crease area, off rebounds. Bobrovsky has a 3.00 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in the playoffs. The Blue Jackets need to win two more to advance, beginning with Game 6 on Monday at home.
Apr 26 - 9:54 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky will be back in net for the Blue Jackets when they meet the Penguins in Pittsburgh tonight for Game 5 of their first-round playoff series.

The teams are tied at 2-2 in the series. Bobrovsky's been so-so in the series, not close to the level of excellence he reached in his career season last year. His post-season GAA is 3.21 and his save percentage is an even .900. Bobrovsky did not skate with his teammates during the Jackets' Friday practice. He went off on his own for hyper-specific work on his game.
Apr 26 - 9:53 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky shook off a slow start to Wednesday's game before earning a 4-3 overtime decision against the Penguins in Game 4 of their opening round playoff series.

Bobrovsky stumbled through the first 20 minutes of the contest, but he eventually settled down and held the fort as his teammates mounted a triumphant comeback. He allowed three goals on 25 shots in the outing, which brings his playoff GAA to 3.21 and his save percentage to an even .900.
Apr 23 - 10:10 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky mishandled a golden opportunity for the Blue Jackets to take a 2-1 lead as they dropped a 4-3 decision to Pittsburgh in Game 3 of their opening round playoff series.

Bobrovsky looked sharp for the better part of two periods on this night, but stumbled down the stretch. Despite blocking 37 of 41 shots in the game, he allowed all four goals on the Penguins' final 16 shots. He'll get a chance to redeem himself in Game 4 of the series Wednesday.
Apr 21 - 9:56 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky blocked 39 shots in Columbus' 4-3 double-overtime win in Game 2 of their first-round series with the Penguins.

If it wasn't clear in Game 1, it's clear now: the Blue Jackets will be a very tough out. The resilient group bounced back after a very shaky first period in which Bobrovsky gave up three goals on 15 shots that saw the team go down 3-1. Columbus' chances in this series begin and end with the guy in net. Bobrovsky was excellent for the majority of the game, looking more comfortable as the game wore on. Columbus will host Game 3 on Monday with the series tied at one apiece.
Apr 19 - 11:09 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky wasn't happy with his performance in Game 1 on Wednesday.

Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 32 shots in Pittsburgh's 4-3 victory. "I have to be better," Bobrovsky said. "Four goals is a lot, but it's already past me." It was Bobrovsky's first playoff game since 2012 when he was still a member of the Philadelphia Flyers. He has a 4.04 GAA and .855 save percentage in eight career playoff games.
