Torts on what it's like to be Bobrovsky's backup: IT SUCKS
In a very strange, roundabout way, Blue Jackets head coach gives his backup goalie Curtis McElhinney huge props for being the ultimate pro. Tortorella explains how tough it is to be the backup for a workhorse like Bobrovsky, and to have to be the guy to always show up at the morning skate to be a punching bag. Classic Torts.
McElhinney has done will with limited work in Columbus. He backstopped the Jackets to a 3-2 shootout win on Tuesday to improve his record to 2-0-2 with a 1.99 GAA.
