Time for Sergei Bobrovsky to break slump

Sergei Bobrovsky's save percentage since going dancing in South Florida on January 24 is 0.832.

With Ilya Bryzgalov day-to-day due to a piece of bone breaking off and floating around inside his foot (or something), the Flyers' net is once again Bobrovsky's. The guy who stopped 92.7 percent of all shots (408 saves on 440 shots) from November through January, earning the start in the Winter Classic, has struggled of late. He's allowed at least three goals in each of the six times he stepped on the ice (five starts) since that January 24 game vs. the Panthers.

He's been miserable his last six games. But he was really, really good for three months. What better way to snap out of an unsustainably bad funk than to face Toronto?
