Behold, Sergei Bobrovsky's 10 Best Saves From 2017-18 (And Many of Them Were Ridiculous)

Sergei Bobrovsky didn't win a Vezina Trophy last season, but he sure provided some memorable moments.

The Blue Jackets racked up 97 points and Bobrovsky was an integral part of the vast majority, giving his team a chance to win more often than not – and occasionally going above and beyond the expected. compiled clips of Bobrovsky's 10 best saves from the 2017-18 season and the postseason, and some of them you'll remember fondly. The highlight video starts off with a bang, showing a post-to-post robbery on Flyers forward Travis Konecny, so you know this is going to be good when that save is No. 10.

It won't be much of a surprise that Bobrovsky's OT 2-on-0 save against the Detroit Red Wings is the top highlight in this video, but I'd like to make a suggestion: No. 3, in Game 5 of the playoffs this spring against the Capitals, is every bit as good as No. 1.

The range, the quickness, the situation, the stage...Bobrovsky's reflexive and explosive save on Alex Ovechkin might have been his best of the season. In a game where the Blue Jackets needed Bobrovsky to help stem the tide against a surging Capitals team, he delivered in a big way. Unfortunately the Blue Jackets would come up just short, but that save is etched into our minds. 

While all of these are worthy of recognition (honorable mention to Bobrovsky's lunging glove save on Blake Wheeler, featured in the video), what's your favorite?
