Preview: Blue Jackets at Maple Leafs

The Blue Jackets do have one sliver of “motivation” – a victory Wednesday assures that they will finish no worse than 28th in the 30-team league. Coach John Tortorella raised eyebrows by benching goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky and making forward Scott Hartnell a healthy scratch for Monday’s 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers. The Maple Leafs have dropped consecutive one-goal decisions to Detroit and Florida and hope to avoid a fourth consecutive setback. Toronto and Columbus have split a pair of decisions this season, with the away team prevailing in each matchup.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV: </STRONG>7 p.m. ET, FSN Ohio (Columbus), Sportsnet East/Ontario (Toronto)
