Bobrovsky, 28, started in three of the Blue Jackets’ four games last week, going 2-0-1 with a 0.33 goals-against average, .989 save percentage (87-of-88) and two shutouts.  He stopped 29-of-30 shots in a 1-0 overtime loss at Montreal on February 28 before posting back-to-back shutouts for the first time in his NHL career.  He earned a 38-save shutout in a 1-0 win vs. Minnesota on March 2 and had 20 saves in a 3-0 win at New Jersey on March 5.  He set the franchise record for most wins in a single season with his career-high 34th victory on Sunday, surpassing Steve Mason’s 33 victories during the 2008-09 campaign.
The Novokuznetsk, Russia native is 34-13-4 with a 2.09 goals-against average, .929 save percentage and five shutouts in 51 games this season.  He ranks second-T in the NHL in wins, third in goals-against average and save percentage among goalies that have played in 30 or more games and is fourth-T in shutouts.  The accolade is the second for Bobrovsky this season after the netminder was named the NHL’s First Star of the Month of December after going 12-0-0 with a 1.75 goals-against average and .939 save percentage.
Bobrovsky is 174-103-29 with a 2.47 goals-against average and .919 save percentage and 17 shutouts in 318 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets and Philadelphia Flyers.  Acquired from the Flyers in a trade on June 22, 2012, he is Columbus’ all-time leader in wins with a 132-80-19 record, 2.38 goals-against average, .922 save percentage and 17 shutouts in 235 games.
