Jax To Hire Hitchcock Or Andy Murray

from TSN's Bob McKenzie:
The Columbus Blue Jackets search for a new head coach is down to a two-man race and a decision should be made by mid-week. Sources tell TSN that the only two considerations, at this point, are former Philadelphia Flyer Ken Hitchcock and former Los Angeles King Andy Murray. Hitchcock was in Columbus for a full day of meetings with ownership and management on Sunday. Sources say Murray will arrive in Columbus tonight and go through the full day of meetings tomorrow. It's expected that Blue Jackets' general manager Doug MacLean will make a recommendation to ownership by Wednesday. At that point, the only obstacle to hiring the new head coach will be agreeing to a new contract.
