Lightning-Blue Jackets preview


Lightning at Columbus

When/where: 7, Nationwide Arena, Columbus, Ohio

TV/radio: Fox Sports Sun, 970-AM

Key stats: The Blue Jackets (11-17-3) are tied with Toronto for last place in the Eastern Conference (and the NHL), but are 11-10-3 since former Lightning coach John Tortorella took over. Columbus has lost six of its past seven (1-3-3), and is without starting goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky (groin injury) for three weeks. RW David Clarkson appeared to suffer a right wrist injury in Saturday's game against the Islanders, the Columbus Dispatch reported. LW Scott Hartnell and Boone Jenner each have 12 goals for the Blue Jackets. The Lightning won two of three meetings last season, including 7-4 on Nov. 14, 2014 in Columbus.
