Jackets recall goalie from AHL; Bobrovsky (flu) to be re-evaluated Friday

In a move that already-nervous Blue Jackets fans are hoping is merely precautionary, Columbus has recalled goalie Mike McKenna from AHL Springfield under emergency conditions.

The call-up comes after the team’s starter, Sergei Bobrovsky, was forced to leave Tuesday’s 4-2 victory over Detroit after one period, reportedly due to the flu. 

If Bobrovsky is unable to play Friday at home to Pittsburgh, Curtis McElhinney should get the starting nod.
