Bobrovsky will start in the cage Tuesday night, facing pucks from the host Canadiens. Bobrovsky lost eight of 10 decisions in October but was a totally different man this past month, allowing a grand total of 20 goals in 11 starts, equating to a .940 save percentage in that span and leading countless fantasy owners setting lineups to say, "What about Bob?" Well, if you don't have him locked in by now, it might be worth holding off a bit longer since the Habs carry the best record in the league (18-4-3) and have scored more than any other team (88 times in 25 games).
Bobrovsky played well Saturday, but ended up on the losing side of a 3-1 game against the Blues. He allowed two goals. He's been loads better than he was in his first 10 games and is now 7-3 in his last 10. The Jackets are a better team than they've shown this year, but Bob the Goalie will need to stand on his head to give his boys a chance to claw their way back to playoff contention.
Bobrovsky will oppose the Blues as Saturday night's road starter. Bobrovsky is 8-2-0 with a 1.80 GAA and .941 save percentage in 10 November games. Still, it won't be an easy match against the Blues considering they have a plus-5 goal differential with wins in 14 of 23 contests.
Bobrovsky blocked 24 shots in Friday's 2-1 overtime win over Pittsburgh. Bob lost his first six starts this campaign but he's putting it all together with a 7-2-0 record, 1.90 GAA and .939 save percentage in November. It seems that the late-October hiring of coach John Tortorella has done wonders for Bobrovsky's turnaround.
Bobrovsky will start in goal Friday night against the Penguins. Bobrovsky has been one of the league's hottest netminders, reeling off wins in seven of his past nine games with a 1.90 GAA and .939 save percentage over that span. It's clear that the hiring of bench boss John Tortorella in late October has been a boon for Bob.
