from Bob Hunter of the Columbus Dispatch,
Without Bobrovsky, last year’s team might have been the rebuilding team that the world expected before the season. Without that Bobrovsky, this team looks a lot like that rebuilding team.
It’s one reason the coaches had to make sure Bobrovsky understood that a second straight game on the bench was intended to give him another day to work on some of those “minuscule” differences, and nothing more.
“I’ve had a couple of conversations with him,” coach Todd Richards said. “The one thing I let him know — he is our guy. He is our guy. He was the best goalie in the league last year for a reason. He galvanized this team and this franchise.
“We had other players that played well, without question, but he was the guy who stepped up first and gave everyone else confidence, and then everyone else’s game kind of blossomed after that.”
