Flyers Riding Rookie Goalie toward repeat

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/news?slu...aststartflyers
Via AP:

PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Inside the Flyers’ locker room, he’s simply known as Bob.

Around the NHL, Sergei Bobrovsky(notes) is forging another kind of name for himself — as the top rookie goalie in the league and a key reason why Philadelphia is confident it can make a second straight run toward the Stanley Cup finals.

Plucked as a free agent last summer from Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League, Bobrovsky has been all the Flyers could want in a goalie. He’s reliable, durable, and a big winner.

The 22-year-old was the youngest Flyers goaltender to start an opener when he beat the Pittsburgh Penguins on Oct. 7. He’s won 14 games and firmly wrested the job away from veterans Brian Boucher(notes) and Michael Leighton(notes).

Leighton was the No. 1 goalie in training camp until he had back surgery in October. The Flyers went straight to Bobrovsky in the preseason and haven’t been disappointed yet.
