Korpisalo will patrol the crease during Tuesday's home game versus the Red Wings, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports. Korpisalo was a little shaky in his last start Sunday against the Predators, surrendering three goals on 29 shots en route to a 3-1 loss. He'll attempt to snap his six-game losing streak in a favorable home matchup with a Detroit team that's 3-8-1 on the road this year.
Korpisalo made 26 saves in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Predators. The 26-year-old didn't play badly, but Korpisalo still came away with his sixth straight loss, going 0-4-2 over that stretch. On the season he has a poor 3.27 GAA and .894 save percentage, but the Jackets will continue to rely on him as long as Elvis Merzlikins (upper body) remains sidelined.
Korpisalo will guard the road cage in Sunday's game versus the Predators, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports. With Elvis Merzlikins (upper body) still out, the Blue Jackets will lean on Korpisalo for a second start in as many days. The 26-year-old turned aside 31 of 33 shots in Saturday's loss to the Predators, so he'll hope for better offensive support this time around. Korpisalo's currently on a five-game losing streak.
Korpisalo made 31 saves in a 2-1 loss to Nashville on Saturday. He was beaten by two point shots, the second of which took a bad redirect off Blue Jackets defender David Savard. Korpisalo deserved a better fate in his last two outings against the Hawks and Preds. But the harsh reality is that he's 0-5 in his last five starts with 16 goals allowed. And his last win was Feb. 11. We hope the Korpisalo of the last two games is a foreshadowing of a better fantasy future.
Korpisalo will protect the road goal in Saturday's game versus the Predators, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports. Korpisalo is looking to break a four-game losing streak. The 26-year-old recorded an .885 save percentage in that stretch. It's been a tough season overall for Korpisalo, but Saturday's matchup is intriguing for fantasy purposes. The Predators have averaged 32.0 shots on net per game, but they rank 29th with just 2.26 goals per game.
