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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
