Blue Jackets' Bobrovsky Still Sidelined With Flu, McElhinney To Get Nod
The Columbus Blue Jackets will be without No. goalie Sergei Bobrovsky tonight hes still sidelined with the flu so Curtis McElhinney will get the start in a huge game at home versus Pittsburgh.
The Jackets are right in the thick of the Eastern Conference wildcard chase and points are at a premium. As such, theyre hoping the journeyman McElhinney who has been okay this year, with a 9-9-1 record, .909 save percentage and 2.75 GAA can get the job done in front of the Nationwide Arena faithful.
For Pittsburgh, Marc-Andre Fleury will get the start.
