Bobrovsky has reeled off wins in four of his last five games, during which he's posted a .926 save percentage. The injury-plagued Blue Jackets aren't quite at full strength nor will they ever be for the remainder of the season, but there's enough talent surrounding Bobrovsky to make him a viable fantasy play most nights.

After giving up two goals in a 40-second span early in the second period of what had been a scoreless game, Bobrovsky got to enjoy watching his team answer with six straight goals on the other end. Unfortunately, the combination of the Jackets' unreliable defensive efforts and Bobrovsky's own inconsistency has been very damaging to the Russian netminder's fantasy value, as his GAA and save percentage are significantly off the standards he set over the last two seasons.
