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


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, 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.
