No word on who the starting goaltender could be. Steve Mason played Friday, stopping 30 of 34 shots in the Blue Jackets' 4-3 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. In 12 career games against the Avalanche, he's 4-6-2 with a 3.27 goals-against average and .891 save percentage. Sergei Bobrovsky has faced the Avs just twice in his career, going 1-1-0 with a 3.00 GAA and .891 save percentage.
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
