Columbus, OH (Sports Network) – Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky left
Tuesday’s 1-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning with an apparent lower-body
injury and will have an MRI on Wednesday, Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards
said.

Bobrovsky needed to be helped off the ice after going down in a split making a
glove save on J.T Brown with 15:47 left in the game.

Richards said he didn’t know exactly what was bothering Bobrovsky, but that it
was “obviously” a leg injury.

“When he comes out like that you’re a bit nervous,” said Richards. “I don’t
know if we’ll have the answer tomorrow but in the next two days definitely
we’ll know.”

The reigning Vezina Trophy winner made 18 saves before leaving. Curtis
McElhinney finished the game in net, stopping eight shots.
