Sergei Bobrovsky has returned to the Columbus Blue Jackets, but he's not getting back into the crease just yet.

Joonas Korpisalo is starting Saturday against the Washington Capitals, Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella told reporters before the game.

Tortorella said he thinks Korpisalo - who stopped 32-of-35 shots in Thursday's victory over the Nashville Predators - deserves another start.

Columbus will play the second of a back-to-back Sunday against the New York Rangers, but the Blue Jackets bench boss wouldn't say whether Bobrovsky will get the nod for that contest.

Bobrovsky was held out Thursday night for disciplinary reasons. He returned to the team for Friday's practice and team meeting, after which general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said the club was moving on from the situation.

Korpisalo has a .891 save percentage in 16 appearances this season.
