The New And Improved Sergei Bobrovsky

Postby Cubanpuckstopper » Wed Apr 03, 2013 9:00 pm

The goalie know on goaltending BB's as OldSwiss2 gets credit for finding this article.

It discusses the changes to Bobrovsky's game, particularly in his buterfly and the improved results.

With his chest more upright, Bobrovsky now is able to get a better seal between his arms and body, reducing the number of pucks that used to go through him. And because his hands now are more out in front of him rather than pulled back in relation to a forward-pitched torso, he is making cleaner glove saves and steering pucks better with his blocker.

Good article and looks like 2 principle corrections are making a big difference

1) Don't sit on your butterfly, bring your butt up and body straight or forwwards, not leaning back

2) Keep your hands out front

With these changes he is bigger and balance is also corrected making it easier for him to play. Good job by coach Clark.
