Roster Report: These are the lines Columbus used in Wednesday’s practice. Columbus can dress up to 20 skaters instead of the usual 18, but Tortorella said Monday the team might not take advantage of that. The team has skated the same 20 players in its game group practices each day this week since arriving in Toronto, and the two goalies are expected to split the time.
