Leafs host Devils, look to improve playoff position

TORONTO -- The Toronto Maple Leafs appear to be a team on the rise as they try not only to secure a playoff spot but also improve their seeding.

They accomplished a little of both Wednesday night in a 5-2 road victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Toronto returns home to face the New Jersey Devils, who are not playoff contenders, Thursday night at Air Canada Centre.
