Sergei Bobrovsky G CLS 19 Hrs
Bobrovsky made an appearance Saturday against the Senators in relief of starter Curtis McElhinney, who suffered a head injury. The Russian netminder stopped 17 of 18 shot attempts but took the loss on the evening.
The Blue Jackets planned to rest Bobrovsky on Saturday after he was in goal against the Flames a night earlier, but McElhinney's injury forced him to man the crease for roughly half the game. There's whispers that McElhinney may have sustained a concussion and could miss multiple games, a scenario which would likely result in Anton Forsberg getting the call to Columbus. Regardless of who slots in as the backup, Bobrovsky is bound to see a substantial workload in goal.
