Well, looks like he's getting his trial by fire tonight.
I still wish we could take our time and season him in the minors, but if it's come to him beginning the year as our starter, then so be it. I'd be a total liar if I said I wasn't excited to see how this happens.
One of the biggest headliners in camp was the play of 22-year-old Russian goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky.
Now it looks like Bobrovsky will be one of the biggest headlines for the regular season.
Bobrovsky will get the start in tonight’s season opener in Pittsburgh announced Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette.
Bobrovsky led the team in preseason action, appearing in five games and posting a 3-0-1 mark to go along with a 1.76 goals-against average and .939 save percentage in 205 minutes of play, allowing six goals on 98 shots.
Further details plus a preview of tonight’s game with Tim Saunders and Chris Therien coming up later…
