Sergei Bobrovsky leaves game vs. Flames due to injury

by Rob Mixer / Columbus Blue Jackets

It has certainly been a tough-luck season on the injury front for Sergei Bobrovsky.

A groin injury suffered Dec. 8 vs. Los Angeles (in the final minutes of regulation) caused him to miss the next 17 games, and in that span, he went through a setback that delayed his return date beyond initial three-week diagnosis.

And in his second game back from that injury, he was forced to leave the game with a lower body injury. Joonas Korpisalo took over from that point and made 12 saves in relief.

Bobrovsky had played 31:30 of the Blue Jackets' 4-2 loss to Calgary before departing. He did not return, was not on the bench and if he is out for any amount of time, the Blue Jackets will be recalling a goaltender (likely Anton Forsberg) from the Lake Erie Monsters on Friday.

THE LATEST: John Tortorella had no update on Bobrovsky following the game. "There's no sense in me speculating about it," he said.
