TORONTO, Ontario (WTVN)--It was a bounce-back win Sunday for the Columbus Blue Jackets that bounced the Toronto Maple Leafs out of the NHL Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

The CBJ beat Toronto 3-0 in Game 5 of their best-of-five series, with goals by Zack Werenski, Liam Foudy, and Nick Foligno sealing the win.

Goalie Joonas Korpisalo made 33 saves in the win, after Elvis Merzlikins was ruled out for Game 5.

The Jackets recovered after leading 3-0 with 4 minutes left in Game 4 of the series Friday, only to allow all three tying goals at the end of regulation, and then losing in overtime.

The Jackets will take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in the First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with game 1 of the best-of-seven series Tuesday in Toronto.
