It’s been mostly bad goaltending news (unless you’re a journeyman former roller hockey legend) on Sunday, but the Columbus Blue Jackets have a bright side to look on, as Sergei Bobrovsky‘s expected to return on Monday.

He’ll face the New York Rangers tomorrow after being sidelined since Dec. 3 with a groin injury, the Columbus Dispatch’s Aaron Portzline reports.

The Blue Jackets didn’t really see their fate change with “Bob” out, as they went 7-6-1 since the 25-year-old. Curtis McElhinney faced ups and downs in getting the majority of the starts with the Russian netminder on the shelf.

The team’s getting a little healthier here and there, though, with Nathan Horton finally in the mix and Bob readying to return.

(H/T to The Score.)

    Lets go Columbus Blue Jackets!!! Last half will be a bit better, I hope Toronto drops off and Columbus can make it via the wild card or maybe the last seed in the Metropolitan
