  • Bobrovsky stopped all 35 shots he faced in a 1-0 victory against the Coyotes on Saturday. The Russian netminder needed all 35 of his saves to win, which isn't ideal, but he got the win and his league-leading fourth shutout of the season. Bobrovsky also improves to 16-7-1 with a .930 save percentage and 2.06 GAA. If he keeps it up, Bobrovsky will be in line to win his second straight Vezina and third of his career.

  • Bobrovsky will start in goal Saturday night versus the visiting Coyotes, Steve Gorten of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Stacking the 2017 Vezina Trophy Winner against the featherweights of the Pacific Division seems like a winning formula, but then again, Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella has made the brazen move of sending one of his best wingers in Cam Atkinson to the press box for this upcoming contest. Also, the Columbus crew could be taxed after hanging five goals on New Jersey in a 5-3 road win Friday night. We're not necessarily saying that you should avoid the high-caliber backstop in fantasy on this heavy daily slate, but understand that he's bound to be a chalky play and there may be some complacency shown from the Jackets based on the favorable cross-conference matchup.

  • Bobrovsky stopped 21 of 24 shots during Friday's 5-3 win over New Jersey. The Russian backstop has now allowed three goals or more in each of his past three starts, but at least he earned the win Friday to snap a two-game losing streak. With a 15-7-1 record, .927 save percentage, 2.15 GAA and three shutouts for the season, it's hard to throw too much shade Bobrovsky's way. However, if the high goal counts against continue, fantasy owners might need to reevaluate his matchup-proof status.

  • Bobrovsky will guard the cage in Friday's road game against the Devils, Andrew Gross of The Bergen Record reports. Bobrovsky struggled Tuesday in the first game of Columbus' home-and-home series with the Devils, surrendering four goals on 36 shots en route to a 4-1 loss. The 29-year-old netminder will look to bounce back Friday and snag his 15th win of the campaign in a road matchup with a New Jersey squad that's only averaging 2.50 goals per game at home this season, 28th in the NHL.

  • Bobrovsky stopped 32 of 36 shots during Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Devils. Make no mistake, New Jersey has brought an admirable offense to the rink this season and now owns a 16-7-4 record and average of 3.11 goals per game. Still, this checked out as a winnable game for Columbus, and this Devils victory actually leap-frogged them ahead of the Blue Jackets in the standings. Bobrovsky had allowed two goals or fewer in each of his previous eight starts, and even with this underwhelming showing, he sports a high-end 14-7-1 record, .929 save percentage and 2.11 GAA. Continue to turn his way confidently in all settings.
