Mike McKenna set aside 27 shots in the Blue Jackets' 4-3 overtime loss to St. Louis on Saturday night.

The Blue Jackets are in a tough spot right now, as they are now on their third-string goalie due to injuries. McKenna was very good in the AHL, but the NHL is a totally different beast. In his two games this season, he has a 3.00 goals-against average and .898 save percentage.

Mike McKenna will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Curtis McElhinney left Thursday's contest due to a lower-body injury, prompting Mike McKenna to play in an NHL game for the first time since Dec. 2, 2010. McKenna kicked out 17 of 18 shots in 40 minutes to help the Blue Jackets beat the New York Rangers. McElhinney's injury isn't believed to be serious, so McKenna's time as the Blue Jackets' de facto starter might be brief.

Mike McKenna participated in his first NHL contest on Thursday since Dec. 2, 2010.

McKenna was called up with Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) is sidelined and got into Thursday's contest because Curtis McElhinney had a lower-body injury. McKenna turned aside 17 of 18 shots in 40 minutes to preserve Columbus' lead against the New York Rangers. "He was fantastic," Blue Jackets forward Ryan Johansen said of McKenna. "I don’t know the exact number of games he's played in the NHL, but I know playing in Madison Square Garden isn't an easy task. For him to step in like that and do the job he did was very impressive. I'm proud of him." For the record, this was McKenna's 18th career NHL game.
