Korpisalo led the Blue Jackets onto the ice for Game 2.

Korpisalo stopped all 28 shots the he faced in a shutout win over the Maple Leafs in Game 1. The Blue Jackets did a terrific job in limiting Toronto and Korpisalo was there to clean up the rest. As good as he was, Toronto is still a high-powered offence that should bring a better effort in Game 2, making Korpisalo a somewhat risky DFS play.

The Blue Jackets have activated Joonas Koprisalo from IR and recalled him from Cleveland (AHL).

Korpisalo has been out since December 29th but comes back up after a one-game conditioning stint. Korpisalo, who was red-hot before he got hurt, stopped 32 of 34 shots in a winning effort in his game with Cleveland. Elvis Merzlikins has had a more difficult time recently, so Korpisalo should get a decent workload upon his return.

Korpisalo is expected to miss "weeks" with a knee injury.

Korpisalo has been among the best goalies in the NHL since mid-November, ranking first in the NHL in wins (11), tied for second in shutouts (2), tied for sixth in GAA (2.04) and tied for 10th in SV% (.926) over that span. Korpisalo suffered a knee injury during the shootout vs. Chicago last night and now the Blue Jackets turn to an inexperienced duo of Elvis Merzlikins and Matiss Kivlenieks.
