Fast Facts

> Red Attack: Cory Schneider gets the start and will look to make the season series a perfect 4-0 for Vancouver. With a win the Canucks will mark a new franchise record with 50 wins in a season. Daniel Sedin will look to pad his points lead and see if he can narrow the goal scoring gap between him (40) and Cory Perry (44). Glass & Samuelsson look to be out again and Tanev will sit in favor of Rome.

> Playing The Stretch: Columbus (probably!) won't make the playoffs for the ninth time in its short history, has lost 12 of the last 14 and shutout three of its last five. Yikes. Keep an eye out for Umberger, Sestito and Voracek, all of who have two points a piece against Vancouver this season.

> Impress Your Friends With Knowledge!: Vancouver is 24-9-2 lifetime against the Jackets.
