Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Gets Game 1 nod

Bobrovsky will start Sunday's Game 1 against the Lightning. Bobrovsky will get first crack at the Panthers' net in the postseason, but he'll be on a short leash with the capable Chris Driedger and Spencer Knight both waiting in the wings. Despite posting a forgettable 3.32 GAA and .879 save percentage in five regular-season matchups with Tampa Bay, Bobrovsky was carried to a 3-2 record by Florida's potent offense.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Finally sharp

Bobrovsky made 28 saves in a 5-1 win over the Lightning on Saturday. Bob was sharp and he needed to be given his recent scuffles. The 10-million-dollar man has failed to live up to that contract and while he's likely the top kitty in the litter box when the postseason begins, Bobrovsky will get scooped out if he falters then. Spencer Knight has been a strong surprise and Chris Driedger has proven he's a step above this season, and the Panthers won't be patient with Bob if he can't perform. This team as a shot to emerge from its division and coach Joel Quenneville won't let a wobbly Bobby stop that from happening.

Bobrovsky will start Monday's game against the Blue Jackets. Bobrovsky will face his former team for the eighth time in his career, having dominated Columbus to the tune of a 5-1-1 record, 2.41 GAA and .931 save percentage. That success includes victories in all four of their meetings this season, and Bobrovsky's well positioned to get right back in the winner's circle considering the Blue Jackets come to Florida having lost five in a row.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Well supported in road win

Bobrovsky stopped 28 of 31 shots in a 5-3 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday. Two of the three Lighting goals came on deflections from in close, but Bobrovsky was solid otherwise en route to his 16th victory. He hasn't quite reached the elite level of performance he displayed over his seven years in Columbus, but Bobrovsky's second season in Florida has been much steadier than his first; he's lowered his GAA from 3.23 to 2.86 and lifted his save percentage from .900 to .907.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Stunned by Stars

Bobrovsky made 16 saves in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Stars. Dallas ambushed him with three goals in the first 9:03 of the first period, and while Bobrovsky steadied the ship after that, the Panthers were never able to get back in the game. The veteran netminder has lost two straight starts as he continues his roller coaster of a season, and Bobrovsky sports a 2.85 GAA and .907 save percentage through 24 appearances.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: In goal Tuesday

Bobrovsky will get the starting nod on the road against the Hurricanes on Tuesday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports. Despite a three-game winning streak in which he has posted a 1.96 GAA, Bobrovsky continues to share the workload with backup Chris Driedger. The 32-year-old Bobrovsky will look to carry that momentum into Tuesday's match versus a Carolina club he has faced just once this year.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Third win in row

Bobrovsky made 44 saves in a 5-2 win over Columbus on Saturday. Bob came up huge against his former team, for whom he toiled from 2012-19. Bobrovsky has been razor sharp in his last three games. He beat the Stars, Wings and Blue Jackets, delivering a .948 save percentage in those three games. These are the kinds of performances the kitties were hoping to get when they inked him to that big deal. Bobrovsky is a solid activation right now.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Stymies Red Wings

Bobrovsky stopped 35 of 36 shots Tuesday in a 4-1 win over the Red Wings. Bobrovsky won his second consecutive start right on the heels of a three-game losing streak. The only goal he allowed was a Filip Zadina power-play snipe from in close during the second period. Bobrovsky, who improved to 14-5-2 on the year, appears to be back on track after that brief losing skid, although he'll still continue to cede a significant share of starts to Chris Driedger.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Taking on Dallas

Bobrovsky will guard the road twine in Saturday's game versus the Stars. Following a six-game winning streak, Bobrovsky has now lost three straight, recording an .886 save percentage in the process. He'll look to snap out of his funk Saturday; Chris Driedger likely will start in Sunday's rematch. The Stars are a formidable foe, but they've lost four of their last six games while averaging 2.7 goals.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Drops third straight

Bobrovsky kicked out 18 of 20 shots in a 3-0 loss to Chicago on Thursday. Goals by Patrick Kane and Pius Suter in the first 3:34 of the second period were the difference in this one.

Bobrovsky has now lost three consecutive starts after rattling off six straight wins to start the month. He'll look to get back on track Saturday in Dallas.

Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: In goal Thursday

Bobrovsky will get the starting nod on the road versus the Blackhawks on Thursday, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports. Bobrovsky conceded six goals on 50 shots over his last two outings, both losses, following his six-game winning streak. With the Russian netminder stumbling, he has once again found himself splitting the duties with Chris Driedger but could once again take the bulk of the workload if he can get back on the right path.
