But will the general managers bypass Bobrovsky in their voting because his team did not make the playoffs? Here are the numbers:             Save    Goalie, team   Record   GAA   pct.   SO    Sergei Bobrovsky, Columbus    21-11-6   2.

There were no surprises when the Flyers' protected list for the June 23 expansion draft was released by the NHL. As was reported in yesterday's Daily News, the Flyers didn't protect winger Keith Jones, figuring his balky left knee and the $3.6 million he is owed over the next two seasons would keep him safe from the Minnesota Wild or the Columbus Blue Jackets, set to begin play in October. "We think expansion teams won't take him; we gambled that they wouldn't," Clarke said.

The Flyers were scheduled to have former Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Ole-Kristian Tollefsen in for a physical on Sunday and planned to sign the native of Oslo, Norway, if he passed, the Delaware County Daily Times reported Sunday. With Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren on vacation, a team spokesman was unable to confirm yesterday that the unrestricted free agent had been in town. The 6-foot-2, 211-pound Tollefsen is a four-year veteran who was taken by the Blue Jackets in the third round of the 2002 NHL entry draft.

Brent Seabrook scored on a two-on-one break at 3 minutes, 23 seconds of overtime and the host Chicago Blackhawks (18-0-3) extended their NHL-record, season-opening point streak to 21 games with a 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night. Jonathan Toews carried the puck down left wing and dished a cross-ice pass to Seabrook, who fired in a shot from the right circle before goalie Steve Mason could slide across the crease. Ray Emery made 19 saves for the win. Chicago won its eighth straight overall and has earned 39 out of a possible 42 points this season.

Nikolai Zherdev scored twice within 4 minutes late in the third period - one on a highlight-reel move that provided the go-ahead goal - and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the visiting St. Louis Blues, 6-4. With the score tied at 3-3, Zherdev swooped into the offensive zone and passed the puck backward between his legs before wristing a shot from the high slot that beat goaltender Hannu Toivonen with 5 minutes, 57 seconds left in the period....

R.J. Umberger scored his second goal of the game on a power play 1 minute, 45 seconds into overtime to give the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets a 5-4 win against the Washington Capitals yesterday. The Capitals played much of the game without Alex Ovechkin, who left early in the second period with an "upper body injury" and did not return. Blue Jackets left wing Raffi Torres scored twice in the final 6 1/2 minutes of regulation, including the tying goal with 23 seconds left to send the game into overtime.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Brendan Morrison was credited with the tiebreaking goal with 6 minutes, 11 seconds remaining in the third period, and the Vancouver Canucks held on to end their five-game skid with a 3-2 triumph over the Columbus Blue Jackets last night. Morrison's pass struck Columbus forward Manny Malhotra and caromed into the Blue Jackets' net, snapping a third-period tie. Mattias Ohlund and Anson Carter also scored for the Canucks. Ron Hainsey and Malhotra scored for the Blue Jackets.

Adam Foote, a defensive cornerstone of two championship teams in Colorado, signed a 3-year contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets yesterday. Foote, 34, the highest-profile player to sign with the 5-year-old Blue Jackets, was lured to Columbus by the promise that general manager Doug MacLean would improve the team. Columbus failed to reach the playoffs in its first four NHL seasons. Foote signed a 3-year, $13.8 million contract Monday night with the Blue Jackets, who have often come up short because of a lack of dependable defensemen.

Rick Nash, rookie Ryan Johansen, and Fedor Tyutin each scored for the host Columbus Blue Jackets in a 3-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night, only their second win of the season. James Wisniewski added two assists for the Blue Jackets. Steve Mason turned-aside 18 shots, including three key saves with the Ducks on the power play and pressing for the tying goal in the second period. Elsewhere: Colin Greening and Chris Neil scored power-play goals and the host Ottawa Senators extended their winning streak to six with a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

After weeks of lopsided losses and blown leads, the Columbus Blue Jackets have fired second-year coach Scott Arniel. General manager Scott Howson announced the firing Monday. Howson said things had spiraled out of control recently. "We were playing pretty good [after a bad start] until the middle of December and we were going in the right direction, but it's gone off the rails since then," he said on the team's website of the Blue Jackets' 2-8-1 mark since Dec. 15. The Blue Jackets have blown eight games in which they led heading into the final period, the most in the NHL by a wide margin.

Playing against a team in the midst of another collapsing season, the Flyers were outshot by 12 attempts. All-stars Jake Voracek and Claude Giroux, two of the NHL's top scorers, combined to muster only one shot. But the Flyers exited the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night with their first 1-0 victory of the season because of Steve Mason. The 26-year-old goaltender turned away each of the Toronto Maple Leafs' 30 shots en route to his 25th NHL shutout. "Without him, I don't think we would've won the game," defenseman Luke Schenn said.

Looking back, R.J. Umberger knows exactly when he became more than a man, or maybe less of one. It was Sept. 21, 2011. He signed a five-year, $23 million contract extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets that day. Umberger had scored at least 23 goals in each of his previous three seasons, had emerged as a fixture on the team's power-play and penalty-killing units, and presumed he'd be part of Columbus' core with Rick Nash and Derick Brassard for...

Steve Mason always promised to be something of a mystery for the Flyers in these playoffs anyway, only there are more questions now. He spent 15 minutes on the ice during Tuesday's practice, sent out a cryptic text message to the media about the cryptic upper-body injury he'd sustained on Saturday, and neither coach Craig Berube nor general manager Paul Holmgren offered anything more than murk when asked whether Mason would be healthy enough to start...

The game was gone by now, and Claude Giroux brought his stick down like a hatchet on the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets' Mark Letestu, knocking Letestu's stick to the ice, drawing a meaningless penalty and one last groan from the few faithful souls who hadn't made for the Wells Fargo Center exits. There were just 23 seconds remaining in regulation Thursday night, when Giroux plopped down into the penalty box and dropped his head, the scene an ideal symbol for a long, frustrating night for the Flyers.

FOR THE FIRST TIME in a long time, the Flyers played a home game they didn't have to have last night. And they played it that way, too. Even at the point late in the second period of a 2-0 loss when they had doubled up the Columbus Blue Jackets in shots, 26-13, the lack of immediacy in their game was easily discernible - unneeded extra passes, passes into unoccupied slots, home-run tries that were easily picked at midice and sent the other way. ...

Goalies Steve Mason and Sergei Bobrovsky will oppose their former teams Thursday, adding to the intrigue surrounding the critical matchup between the Flyers and Columbus Blue Jackets. The Blue Jackets are fighting for their playoff lives and figure to bring an air of desperation to the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers, third in the Metropolitan Division, haven't clinched a playoff spot, but they have a four-point lead over the fourth-place Blue Jackets. Both teams have seven games remaining.

A had-to-see-it-to-believe-it shot by captain Claude Giroux capped a furious late rally that enabled the Flyers to finally get to the other side of Mount Mediocrity on Thursday night. They overcame a 3-0 third-period deficit and stunned the Columbus Blue Jackets, 5-4, in front of a roaring crowd at the Wells Fargo Center. Giroux scored two late goals - including the 100th of his career with 1 minute, 38 seconds remaining on a backhanded, backward shot to the top corner as he was falling down - as the Flyers (16-15-4)

IT IS NO SECRET that the Columbus Blue Jackets gave up on Steve Mason. Last spring, Mason was due a $3.2 million qualifying offer as a restricted free agent. Sergei Bobrovsky, now out of the lineup with a groin strain, was wrapping up a Vezina Trophy season in goal. It was clear Mason didn't fit into the Blue Jackets' future. Three weeks before the NHL's trade deadline last April, new Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen gave Mason's agent, Anton Thun, permission to line up a trade.

Flyers center Brayden Schenn was relieved Wednesday after surviving a nasty hit from Washington's Tom Wilson during Tuesday's 5-2 win over the visiting Capitals. Skating at full speed, Wilson hit Schenn, whose head crashed into the boards. Schenn needed to be helped off the ice. He said he has a stiff upper back and neck from the incident. "I feel good, better than I thought," Schenn said after he sat out Wednesday's optional practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. According to general manager Paul Holmgren, a formal concussion test was not needed after a preliminary evaluation.

THE FIRST QUESTION Petr Straka gets is usually about his name. Anyone following hockey in the 1990s will remember the name Martin Straka, a former All-Star who racked up 717 points in his career. Petr Straka has the same last name - and shares the same hometown of Plzen, Czech Republic, the birthplace of pilsner beers. But the two have no relation. After signing a 3-year entry-level deal with the Flyers in April, prospect Petr Straka is trying to make a name for himself at hockey's highest level.
