And if you expand it out to a 7-game stretch in a single playoff season…he’s doing something we’ve never come close to seeing

More than 18 goals saved in 7 games, that’s huge.
That’s impressive, especially considering how Sergei Bobrovsky hasn’t been getting the Panthers’ vote of confidence lately. He’s lost the net time and time again, to Chris Driedger, Spencer Knight and most recently, Alex Lyon. Aside from Game #4 against the Bruins, in which he allowed 5 goals on 30 shots, Bob was phenomenal.
Think about it… One game under .917, and six games over .936! In the last three games, Bobrovsky recorded efficiency rates of .962, .969 and .974!
That’s already 100 saves against the Hurricanes.
The former two-time Vezina Trophy winner hasn’t had it easy, despite his $10 million salary.
If the Panthers, who have the aura of a Stanley Cup contender, go all the way, it won’t be easy to decide the Conn-Smythe Trophy winner between Bobrovsky and Matthew Tkachuk.
The Panthers move to 9-1 in the playoffs since losing to Boston game 4 of the first round. Bob is on another planet, Tkachuk is a man possessed and the cats feel like a team of destiny.

Friedman last night reports Leafs are looking for a GM with “bite”, a GM that won’t be afraid to make decisions. There are big decisions to make because it doesn’t appear likely Auston Matthews will sign by July 1.
