Bobrovsky Makes NHL History with Exceptional Performance
Moscow, May 13 – Russian goalkeeper of the Florida Panthers Sergei Bobrovsky set a new club record for the number of deflected shots in the decisive game of the National Hockey League (NHL) playoff series.
In the fifth meeting of the Stanley Cup second round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Bobrovsky made 50 saves. As a result of the meeting, “Florida” defeated “Toronto” in overtime (3: 2), and, having won the fourth victory in the series, reached the final of the Eastern Conference. Thus, Bobrovsky became the club record holder for the number of saves in the decisive match of the series. The previous achievement belongs to Scott Clemmensen, who made 39 saves in 2012 in such a game.
Bobrovsky also became the second goaltender in Florida history to save 50 or more shots in a single NHL playoff game. The feat was previously set by John Vanbiesbroek, who made 55 saves in Game 4 of the 1996 Stanley Cup Finals against the Colorado Avalanche (0-1).
The Florida Panthers will face the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Finals for the 2022-23 season.
