Sergei Bobrovsky will start for Columbus on Thursday.
While other teams have rested their starting goaltender in their return game if he played in the Olympics, the Blue Jackets have taken a different approach. "I'm not worried about how he is coming back. He's a very prepared, focused professional," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "I know that's how he's going to perform and be through the next 24 games. The one thing we have to be careful of is how we use him. He's your thoroughbred out on the race track. You have to play him and ride him, but you have to be careful."

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped all seven shots he faced in relief, but Team Russia lost their quarterfinal contest against Finland by a score of 3-1.
Semyon Varlamov started the game and he was pulled after allowing three goals on 15 shots. Bobrovsky was in goal for Tuesday's 4-0 whitewashing of Norway, so the Russians will face some criticism for putting Varlamov in for Wednesday's loss. The host country won't be able to compete for a medal in men's hockey now, as Finland will play Sweden in one semifinal match-up.
