If anyone doesn't believe we (Flyers) have a goaltending problem, you need a urinalysis. You may have been slipped something. Maybe biggest game of season so far. Bobrovsky lets in 3 goals. The rest of the Flyers, playing one of their best games all year something I've been waiting for since January, rally for 4-3 lead. Boucher, who came in for Bob, gives up softee, 4-4. And then Boucher proceeds to give up three staight SO goals.
I resided myself to looking forward to the Phillies' season. Just when we witness a real awakening worthy Stanley Cup contender. We get this crap from goalie. I was ticked off when the so-called experts said in the preseason that our goaltending was suspect. I am now eating crow. Ketchup helps.

And then Bob plays out of his mind. He let the big game get to him. Rookies have that happen to them. If he didn't come back last night as well as he did, I'd say you have a point. But he did.

Am i a bit anxious over the goalie situation? Of course, Bob's going to be the starter and he's a rookie. Am I worried we'll be 1 and done? No. Especially after he showed he can bounce back from a bad game.
