Bobrovsky looks to be Flyers starter in Ottawa
Sergei Bobrovsky was the first goalie off the ice for the Flyers this morning in Ottawa, meaning he will be getting his first start of the season tonight against the Senators.

Ilya Bryzgalov started the first four games for the Flyers and went 3-0-1 including a shutout, posting a 1.99 goals-against average and .927 save percentage along the way.

Bobrovsky went 28-13-8 over 54 appearances as a rookie last season. He had a .915 save percentage and 2.59 GAA.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
