Bobrovsky Needs To Play

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Bobrovsky, 22, got just his third start in nine games Friday in a 5-2 loss to Anaheim. He has a 15-6-3 record, a 2.57 goals-against average, and .915 save percentage.

From here, the Flyers are treading dangerous territory. If they continue to play Bobrovsky sparingly, you wonder if he will stop believing in himself.

“It’s always a concern,” goalie coach Jeff Reese said. “. . . He’s a young goalie who is finding himself, and there will be bumps in the road. It’s a learning process, and that’s what he’s going through now. Everybody goes through it.”

They do, but for Bobrovsky, who is alone in a new country, not playing much has to be extra difficult. The rink is his sanctuary. The kid is so focused, so diligent about working longer than anyone.

In short, he needs to be playing. A lot.
