Welcome back, Sergei Bobrovsky.

Playing in his first game in over a month, Bobrovsky backstopped the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-3 shootout win on Monday, making 40 saves. The highlight clip below didn’t count as one of the 40, but instead it was a slick glove save off New York Rangers’ forward Rick Nash in the skills competition.

Nash scored twice in regulation, including a power play goal in the third period to help send it to overtime and the shootout. But he couldn’t beat Bobrovsky one-on-one.

“He was great. He plays well for us every night. He’s a big part of our team,” Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson told afterward. “We’re slowly getting healthier and healthier. It’s great to have your goalie back.”

    This headline makes it sound like Bobrovsky actually took off his glove and threw Rick Nash. Still a sick save tho.
