Philadelphia Flyers, Shutout loss Against Columbus, Pittsburgh Rivalry Resumes
Philadelphia was unable to beat former Flyer Sergei Bobrovsky Saturday afternoon falling 1-0.
Philadelphia out shot Columbus, 36-21 on the night, pressing to break their current 10 games losing streak in Columbus, but ended up coming just short on the afternoon.
Sergei Bobrovsky looks like the one that got away for the Flyers. He’s posted a 2.02, GAA and .932 SV% on the season, and is a considered a Vezina Trophy favorite. The Philadelphia Flyers traded Bobrovsky in exchange for two 2012 draft picks, which they used to select Anthony Stolarz and Taylor Leier. The Flyers dealt Bobrovsky because they had signed the enigmatic Ilya Bryzgalov to a long-term deal.
