Blue Jackets vs. Predators: Sergei Bobrovsky's flurry of saves keeps it scoreless

No stick? No problem.

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sport

Stop me if you heard this before: Sergei Bobrovsky is coming up huge with the Jackets' season on the line.

Apparently, the only way the Predators are going to beat Bob is by kicking it in. Nashville crashed the net hard, releasing an onslaught of shots from in tight on Bobrovsky. Not only did Bob stop all of them, he did it without his stick and while shoving his opponents in between saves.

What else do you expect from Super Bob? His heroics kept it scoreless early in the first period, and it could very well provide the Jackets with a playoff berth by the end of the night.
