Blue Jackets' Bobrovsky might play against Penguins

NHL.com Staff | Saturday, 02.28.2015 / 9:55 PM

BLUE JACKETS (26-31-4) at PENGUINS (35-17-9)

TV: FS-O, ROOT

Season series: The Columbus Blue Jackets have defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins twice in as many tries this season. Curtis McElhinney made 29 saves, and Brandon Dubinsky scored a shorthanded goal with 2:17 left in the third period to give Columbus a victory at Consol Energy Center 10 days ago.

Blue Jackets team scope: Sergei Bobrovsky was activated off injured reserve Saturday and backed up Curtis McElhinney in a 2-0 home loss to the New Jersey Devils; it was Columbus' fifth loss in a row (0-4-1). If Bobrovsky plays Sunday, it would be his first appearance since sustaining a groin injury Jan. 21. Forward David Clarkson will be playing his second game after being acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday. He had two shots on goal, four hits and a minor penalty in 16:13 in the loss to the Devils. "I didn't come out of the game scratching my head or anything like that," coach Todd Richards said of Clarkson. "He was fine. He was good."

Penguins team scope: Pittsburgh has been off since its 4-3 road victory against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, a game defenseman Rob Scuderi was unable to finish after blocking a shot with his foot. But after sitting out practice Thursday and the Penguins getting the day off Friday, Scuderi practiced Saturday and told the Penguins website he felt good. If Scuderi plays, it will be his 700th NHL game. Newcomer Daniel Winnik, a bottom-six forward acquired from the Maple Leafs on Wednesday, had his first practice with his new team Saturday after getting his work visa. He skated on the third line with Brandon Sutter and Steve Downie, and worked with the penalty-killing unit. Winnik ranks first in the NHL among forwards at 3:27 per game on the penalty kill.
