Lightning face Blue Jackets in 1st-round NHL playoff rematch

TORONTO (AP) As if forward Alex Killorn and the Tampa Bay Lightning needed yet another reminder of last year's monumental playoff collapse in preparing to open the first round Tuesday.

The ever-stingy, John Tortorella-coached Columbus Blue Jackets are standing in their way once again in the best-of-seven series to be played in the Eastern Conference hub city of Toronto.

"We're not focusing on last year," Killorn said, in summing up how most Tampa Bay players have grown tired of discussing how the Presidents' Trophy-winning Lightning were swept in four games by the Blue Jackets in April 2019. "We're focusing on playing our game and excited for playoff hockey."
