Flyers appear in no rush to name No. 1 goaltender

"All is good." Another possible avatar saying.

The Flyers are No. 1 team in the National Hockey League, but there’s a catch. If it was any other club in this spot you’d know who their No. 1 goalie was outright.

Sergei Bobrovsky has played in 30 games to Brian Boucher’s 19. Yet, if you go by recent history – past month – it would seem that Boucher has unseated the Russian rookie.

Boucher has been thoroughly consistent the entire season. On the other hand, Bobrovsky has won four in a row.

“You know I hate numbers,” Laviolette said. “I don’t like to talk about a No. 1 defensive pair. I don’t like to talk about a No.1 power play unit. I don’t like to talk about a No. 1 line. I am not interested in numbers.

“I think we’re moving along OK this year. I haven’t assigned any numbers yet ... I don’t believe in it. Go in there and play hard and good chance you will get back in there.”

Does the rotation matter to the goalies?
