WOW! WTF! "Bobrovsky Unnerved Already?!"

Sergei Bobrovsky says he's "nervous."

Not as much as those jittery Philadelphia Flyer fans on Broad St. who hope the rookie goaltender is not the reincarnation of Roman Cechmanek.

In the battle between the pipes that will ultimately help decide the first-round series between the Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers, defending Vezina Trophy winner Ryan Miller would seem to have a decided edge.

And, after Bobrovsky admitted Wednesday that the butterflies already are churning inside his belly, well, that might be cause for concern for a Flyers team that more often than not has had goaltending questions over the years.

Back in the Flyers Stanley Cup years of the 1970s, a sign at the Spectrum blared: "Only Christ Saves More Than Bernie Parent."

Excuse Flyer fans if they don't have the same expectations of a "nervous" Bobrovsky, who will make his NHL playoff debut Thursday in Game 1 of the best-of-seven first-round series.
