Bobrovsky sets club record as Jackets edge Panthers

2 Comments

Ryan Johansen had the shootout winner and Sergei Bobrovsky made 52 saves as the Columbus Blue Jackets edged the Florida Panthers 4-3 Thursday night.

Nick Foligno, Cam Atkinson and Boone Jenner gave Columbus a 3-0 lead early in the second period; however, Nick Bjugstad scored twice and Tomas Fleischmann scored the other as Florida forced overtime salvaging a single point.

With his 52-save performance Bobrovsky set a new franchise record.

He wasn’t really interested in discussing it post-game.

Roberto Luongo made 17 saves in the loss.

With the win, the Blue Jackets have won two in a row for the first time since mid-November.

The Panthers dropped both games in the home-and-home with Jackets this week.
