Columbus Blue Jackets News

Korpisalo led the Blue Jackets onto the ice for warmups.

Korpisalo was 2-1 while posting a 1.45 GAA, .956 SV% and two shutouts in four starts vs. the Maple Leafs in the qualifying round. It was a terrific showing from Korpisalo, who is now the unquestioned No.1 in Columbus with Elvis Merzlikins out indefinitely. Korpisalo did not face the Lightning during the 2020 regular season.

Merzlikins (undisclosed) is out indefinitely.

Merzlikins was banged up in the Blue Jackets’ Game 4 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs and was not available to backup in Game 5. Head coach John Tortorella was not sure how long Merzlikins will be out when he met with the media on Monday. Look for Joonas Korpisalo to start Game 1 vs. Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
