Report: Bobrovsky took off equipment early after being pulled

The Score

Details have emerged concerning the incident that saw the Columbus Blue Jacketswithhold goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky from the team for one of their games last week.

After being pulled with 11 minutes left in a 4-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Jan. 8, Bobrovsky went straight to the dressing room to get undressed and hit the showers, sources confirmed to Aaron Portzline of The Athletic.

Bobrovsky was unavailable to return to the crease in the unlikely event that backup Joonas Korpisalo had to exit the game and his actions infuriated head coach John Tortorella, Portzline adds.
