Blue Jackets goaltender Elvis Merzlikins is out indefinitely, but he’s still making contributions to the team in his own weird way.
For instance, on Wednesday morning, Merzlikins showed support to teammate Joonas Korpisalo with the following ridiculous tweet.

Hydrating is very important in the playoffs. Just ask Barry Trotz.
Korpi set a new NHL playoff record with 85 saves in the Blue Jackets’ five-overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.

Here are all 85 stops.
Wanna watch 85 saves? If you have seven minutes, I'd recommend enjoying Joonas Korpisalo's brilliance as a lunch hour activity. #CBJ #CBJAsOne pic.twitter.com/bt6yOP0xs2
