The Vancouver Canucks will kick off a three-game road trip this afternoon in Columbus with Cory Schneider in goal.
It will be the first time that Schneider has played back to back games since mid-February.
Kevin Bieksa and Keith Ballard did not take part in the game-day skate. That means Andrew Alberts and Cam Barker will remain in the lineup and will make up the third defensive pairing.
The Blue Jackets, who reach the halfway mark of their schedule tonight, are 30th in the overall standings, but have won two in a row and have points in their last four games.
Faceoff is scheduled for 4pm pacific time.
