from Mark Lazerus of The Athletic,
Sergei Bobrovsky is having fun. Honest.
The Florida Panthers goaltender might look like he just came back from a trip to the post office, and he might sound like he’s talking about winning a neutral-site preseason game in front of a few hundred curious onlookers, and it might seem like he’ll doze off at any moment, but really, this is everything he’s ever wanted.
This atmosphere. This pressure. This level of mind-bending success. One hundred saves in two games....
Before Game 1: “It’s great to be here.”
After Game 1: “I’m really fortunate to be in this playoff. I’m happy to be here, very happy to be part of this team.”
After Game 2: “I’m fortunate to be here and happy to play hockey, playoff hockey.”
Also after Game 2: “I’m just happy to be in net at this time.”
Also after Game 2: “I’m just thankful for this spot.”
Sources close to Bobrovsky suggest he’s happy to be here. More on this story as it develops.
But hey, why shouldn’t he be? This is a man who’s lost that net multiple times in recent seasons.
