Truthfully, I’m only peripherally paying attention to the Stanley Cup Playoffs right now. I haven’t been watching full games but rather getting some glimpses from time to time, checking on scores more than actually watching. But one thing that might make me perk up in the next couple of weeks is this: Anton Khudobin is going to be the starting goalie in the Stanley Cup Final.

Dobby, who might just be a cuddly animal in human form (maybe a Golden Retriever? Maybe a Corgi?), earned the starting gig in the playoffs after the usual strater Ben Bishop was deemed unfit to play for a few games. Then when he was able to play, he had a terribad game, so Khudobin was back to starting.
And he’s doing a great job. In these playoffs, he’s 11-6 with a 2.67 GAA and .918 save percentage.
Dobby’s stops on the way to greatness:
Moscow Oblast Atlant
San Diego Gulls

He may have been on all the teams but he’ll always be our Dobby. We can share him because that is exactly what he wants.
