Game Preview #40 - False Start...

Sergei Bobrovsky off IR... then back on IR. Whoops.

Blue Jackets vs. Capitals
7:00 PM - Game Faceoff

That didn't take long.

Shortly after being activated from IR, Sergei Bobrovsky is... not playing tonight. And is back on IR. Retroactive to December 31. Welp dot gif.

Anton Forsberg will backup Curtis McElhinney... assuming his gear gets here in time. I mean. This team, amirite?

Not like they're playing anyone of note tonight.

/checks matchup, standings, and stats


But hey, David Savard is off IR and may play tonight. Ryan Johansen is your third line center. What could possible go wrong?

Happy New Year. Meet the new boss / same as the old boss.
