Korpisalo will start Friday vs. the Blues.

Korpisalo allowed four goals on 36 shots in the Blue Jackets loss in Colorado last Saturday. Elvis Merzlikins gave him the night off in Montreal but they will turn back to their “No.1” guy on Friday. He is 3-5-1 with a 2.96 GAA and .889 SV% in his first nine home starts, so there’s not a lot to like about starting him vs. the Blues.
