Bob looking like Flyers' playoff goalie

DALLAS -- Except for a somewhat shaky stretch in the last few weeks, Flyers goalies Sergei Bobrovsky and Brian Boucher have been consistently good this season.

Yet, you could count on one hand the number of times they had stolen a game.

Saturday was one of those rare occurences.

Bobrovsky was superb _ especially in the shootout, when he was at his acrobatic best and allowed just one goal in six shots _ as the Flyers outlasted Dallas, 3-2.

Coach Peter Laviolette played it coy on Saturday, saying he hasn't selected his playoff goalie.

But it's looking more and more like it will be Bob, with Boucher ready to step in if he falters.

From here, it's a wise choice.
