Sergei Bobrovsky signs extension with Columbus Blue Jackets | TheCelebrityCafe.com

The 26-year-old Bobrovsky won the 2013 Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL’s top goalie. He was acquired from Philadelphia for second- and third-round picks in the 2012 draft and a fourth-round pick in 2013. “We believe he’s only going to improve,” Columbus general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said before the team’s 5-2 loss at Toronto on Friday night. “Obviously, it’s ultimately it’s up to the player to prove that he’s worth the contract that he gets. That’s the way we operate, we operate on giving them the futures and that’s how we evaluate these players every day, but we believe with his hard work and dedication he’s going to be one of the top goalies in this league for a long time.” Bobrovsky made 27 saves in the loss, a few hours after signing the big extension. “I’m really happy about that and I’m really happy to stay with the team and this organization,” Bobrovsky said. “They were great to me and it’s great to be a Blue Jacket for four more years.” Bobrovsky, who is 15-11-2 with a 2.80 goals against average and .915 save percentage and one shutout in 28 games this season, is seen as a cornerstone of the franchise. “Bob is a great example of a guy that really puts in the work every day: how he prepares for practice, how he prepares for every game,” Kekalainen said. “He’s a good example in the locker room and off the ice and on the ice the way he is as a professional. That’s the type of leader we want on our team and that’s why we’ve locked up all these core players.” source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/columbus-blue-jackets-sergei-bobrovsky-gets-4-year-extension-010915

New York Islanders beat Columbus Blue Jackets with big second period | FOX Sports

In this one, the Islanders found the net three times in 7:27 in the middle frame to move ahead 4-1. DK Playbook: Strategies for Winning Cash Games Hockey “For the most part, we capitalized on all the chances that we had,” Chad Johnson said. “Just tried to funnel pucks to the net and get to the rebounds when we could.” Tied at 1 and with Sergei Bobrovsky flashing his pads to make one stop after another, he finally didn’t have an answer on a perfect passing combination off a rush started by Casey Cizikas. Strome then sent a pass from the right wing to Martin for the easy redirection in front for his sixth at 10:04. Three minutes later, Kevin Connauton had trouble with a bouncing puck in his skates. Lee grabbed it at the blue line, raced in and beat Bobrovsky between the legs for his 10th. Strait followed with his first at 17:31 on a shot from the slot that deflected off the stick of Columbus’ Ryan Johansen . “It’s always exciting to get back in and play,” Strait said. “It’s one of things where you’ve just got to get back in there and feel comfortable. Try to come in as confident as possible and build each game.” Early in the third period, Foligno snapped home a rebound off Johansen’s shot to close the gap to two on his career high-tying 18th of the season. Okposo closed the scoring with his ninth at 14:54. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/new-york-islanders-beat-columbus-blue-jackets-with-big-second-period-011015
