It was the first time this postseason that the 13-year veteran had given up. four goals in consecutive matches. He also gave up four in each of his last two regular-season games.
Jonathan Marchessault and Alec Martinez gave Vegas a two-goal lead in the first period as the Golden Knights looked to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Nicolas Roy made it 3-0 just 2:59 into the second period, and Brett Howden ended Bobrovsky’s night minutes later when he blasted his way through the box and hit the puck into an open net.
Alex Lyon, who opened the playoffs as Florida’s starter, replaced Bobrovsky after Howden scored 7:10 into the second.
So far in the finale, the two-time Vezina Trophy winner has a 5.52 GAA and an .826 save percentage.
