Bobrovsky statistically best in postseason against Bruins since 2013-14 Carey Price

Share

It's not news to anyone that Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has put on quite a show against the Boston Bruins.

The stats back it up.

Looking at average save percentages for opposing goaltenders against the Bruins in the postseason from hockey-reference.com, Sergei Bobrovsky's average save percentage thus far against the B's of 92.70% is the highest save percentage the Bruins have faced in the postseason since the 93.28% Carey Price posted in the Bruins-Canadiens 2013-14 series.

The Bruins were ousted by the Canadiens in seven games in that series.

But Tuuka Rask has not been shabby. It took two overtime periods to get a winner in the Bruins/Blue Jackets Game 2.

The Bruins won game one 3-2 in overtime.

Rask's save percentage meanwhile was 0.909 in Game 1, and 0.927 in Game 2, an average of 0.918 to Bobrovsky's 0.927.

After a couple nights of rest, perhaps the Bruins will be keeping Bobrovsky a little busier tonight when the puck drops for Game 3 at 7:00 PM.
