Preview: Sabres at Blue Jackets

Columbus is 23-21-7 under coach John Tortorella, who replaced Todd Richards after the team stumbled out of the gate with seven straight defeats. “We have a much better understanding,” Tortorella told the Columbus Dispatch. “It’s from me to them, too. I’m still trying to figure them out, and I still haven’t got it all done. but it’s come along.” The Sabres will welcome back forward Evander Kane, who was suspended for Tuesday’s loss at Ottawa for missing practice following a night of festivities at the NBA All-Star Game. ?I have great optimism that it?s a lesson learned, to be quite frank,? Buffalo coach Dan Bylsma said. ?It?s one he also has to start to show, continue to show that he has learned that lesson.”<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7 p.m. ET, MSG (Buffalo), FSN Ohio (Columbus)
