Joonas Korpisalo went down tonight, some of the worst news that Columbus Blue Jacket fans could hear.

In a 3-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, Korpisalo allowed a goal by opposing captain Jonathon Toews in the shootout and immediately came up hobbling. He went straight to the dressing room following the goal, and Elvis Merzlkins came in as a replacement.

According to Head Coach John Tortorella, Korpisalo suffered a knee injury and is out for "weeks".
