As the Flyers went down in flames on Friday night at TD Garden in Boston, to get swept out of the second-round series by the Bruins, smoke of an uncertain offseason quickly filled the air.
Lost in the haze of disappointment and blame, however, was the play of goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, who provided a flicker of optimism in an otherwise empty 5-1 defeat.
“He was real big in the net,” said defenseman Sean O’Donnell. “He didn’t make the fancy save but I think sometimes with goalies when they don’t make the fancy save is when they are playing well. A lot of pucks were hitting them. You can’t fault him tonight.”
