Sergei Bobrovsky returns, robs Rick Nash in shootout

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

Sergei Bobrovsk returned to the Blue Jackets lineup on Monday and was outstanding, making this highlight reel save to rob Rick Nash in the shootout.

The Columbus Blue Jackets had a welcome sight in their goal crease on Monday night when reigning Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky made his first start since Dec. 3.

His teammates didn't exactly allow him to ease himself back into action by making him face 43 shots. Fortunately for the Blue Jackets Bobrovsky was rock solid for most of the night, making 40 saves to help get the game to shootout where they were able to pull out a 4-3 win.

It was in that shootout where Bobrovsky made what was perhaps his best save of the night when he made this glove save to rob Rangers forward Rick Nash.

Bobrovsky's performance has definitely regressed a bit this season from his incredible run a year ago, but he was on top of his game on Monday.
