Drama in Columbus as goaltender Bobrovsky told to stay home after unspecified 'incident'
Team says pending free agent failed to live up to team's 'expectations and values'
Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky missed Thursday night's game against the Nashville Predators because of an unspecified team "incident."
The team made the announcement several hours before the Blue Jackets were set to play host to the Nashville Predators. Backup Joonas Korpisalo got the start as the Jackets won 4-3 in overtime.
Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 19 shots before being replaced by Korpisalo midway through the third period in a 4-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old Bobrovsky is 18-13-1 in the final year of his contract and so far has declined to sign a long-term extension.
Coach John Tortorella declined to comment on the matter.
