Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky left Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning with an apparent lower-body injury and will have an MRI on Wednesday, Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said.

Bobrovsky needed to be helped off the ice after going down in a split making a glove save on J.T Brown with 15:47 left in the game.

Richards said he didn't know exactly what was bothering Bobrovsky, but that it was "obviously" a leg injury.

"When he comes out like that you're a bit nervous," said Richards. "I don't know if we'll have the answer tomorrow but in the next two days definitely we'll know."

The reigning Vezina Trophy winner made 18 saves before leaving. Curtis McElhinney finished the game in net, stopping eight shots.
