Has ‘Bob’ Solved The Goaltending Problems In Philadelphia?

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Years of bad goaltending decisions may have finally come to an end in Philadelphia, where the Flyers now have 22-year-old Sergei Bobrovsky (of the Novokuznetsk, Russia, Bobrovskys) saving their cheese steak on a nightly basis. In the dressing room, he goes by “Bob.’’ And when he makes a big save at the Wells Fargo Center, a loud “B-o-o-o-o-b-b-b-b-b-b-!’’ bellows over the PA. The event-entertainment folks clipped it from the 1991 movie “What About Bob?’’ featuring Richard Dreyfuss and Bill Murray. Bobrovsky sure looks like the real deal. The Flyers had the Panthers in town last night, and Bob stood an impressive 9-2-1 with a 2.09 goals-against mark and .931 save percentage. He signed as a free agent over the summer, a deal that will pay him a total of $5.25 million over three years.
