    News: Sergei Bobrovsky will be back in the crease for Friday's game against the Sabres, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
    Analysis: Coach Todd Richards hinted earlier in the week that Sergei Bobrovsky would get the nod Friday, and after the goalie turned in a 35-save shutout Wednesday, that plan was only further validated. Bobrovsky has won nine of his last 10 starts and can be used by fantasy owners without trepidation against any opponent, much less the league's worst team in Buffalo. Friday will likely mark his final outing of the season, as backup Curtis McElhinney is expected to be in the net for the finale Saturday on Long Island.
  • Jackets' Bobrovsky Shuts Out Leafs

    Analysis: Per the report, he's also in line to start Friday's game against Buffalo, giving Sergei Bobrovsky consecutive solid-looking fantasy matchups this week. The Blue Jackets close their season on the road against the Islanders on Saturday, with coach Todd Richards still unsure of the team's goaltending plans for that contest.
  • Winning Streak Comes To End For Jackets' Bobrovsky

    News: Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 38 shots Monday, but let the Rangers tie the game in the final minute before surrendering the game-winner in overtime to take a 4-3 loss.
    Analysis: So ends Sergei Bobrovsky's eight-game winning streak, which marked his longest run of the season. Despite the Jackets' myriad injury issues -- which have cost Bobrovsky significant time as well -- the goalie has managed to run into two lengthy hot stretches, as he also had a seven-game streak in December. The ratios (2.76 GAA, .916 save percentage) aren't anything special, but with some better luck on the health front in 2015-16, Bobrovsky looks like a prime bounce-back candidate.

    News: Sergei Bobrovsky will start Monday's game against the Rangers.
    Analysis: Sergei Bobrovsky will be making his ninth consecutive start, which is hardly a surprise, given that he's reeled off eight straight victories for the Blue Jackets, who have won nine in a row overall.
  • Eighth Straight Win For Jackets' Bobrovsky

    News: Sergei Bobrovsky continued his winning ways Saturday, turning aside 33 of 36 shots in a 5-3 win over the Penguins. It was his eighth win in a row.
    Analysis: What a run for Goalie Bob, who has cranked things up in the home stretch of the season. It's a shame the Jackets were so decimated by injuries earlier in the season, as even with eight straight wins they're clearly out of the playoff picture. To date, Sergei Bobrovsky is 28-17-2 with a .916 save percentage and 2.73 GAA.
  • Jackets' Bobrovsky Scheduled For Saturday

    News: Sergei Bobrovsky is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Penguins, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
    Analysis: Sergei Bobrovsky and the Blue Jackets will both be seeking an eighth consecutive win, after beating the Islanders in Thursday's shootout. Bobrovsky has been oddly consistent, giving up either two or three goals in every game of the winning streak.
  • Bobrovsky, Jackets Claim Shootout Win

    News: Sergei Bobrovsky gave up three goals on 28 shots, but ended up being the winning goalie after a two-round shootout Thursday against the Islanders.
    Analysis: Jaroslav Halak was much better on the other end in regulation and overtime, making 36 saves to Bob's 25, but it was the Russian who came away with the win. That's now seven games in a row for the Jackets, but that red-hot run is ultimately meaningless, as they have no chance to make the playoffs anymore.
