The Vancouver Canucks will try to shake their four game losing streak as they face the Columbus Blue Jackets for the second time in five days.
However, they will do so without defender Kevin Bieksa, who continues to struggle with a groin issue that has kept him out of all but one of the past seven Canucks games.
Over that stretch of games the only time Vancouver has registered a victory was against the Los Angeles Kings...Bieksa was in the lineup for that game.
Cam Barker will fill Bieksa's spot in the lineup while the recalled Andrew Ebbett will centre a line with Mason Raymond and Jannik Hansen.
Chris Higgins will remain at centre between David Booth and Zack Kassian.
Game time in Ohio is 4 PM PDT.
