Four players, including two goaltenders, could return to the VGK lineup during the three-game road trip in Canada, which begins Tuesday night in Vancouver. Netminders Logan Thompson and Laurent Brossoit are back as are Nic Roy and Keegan Kolesar. A third goalie, the veteran Jonathan Quick is also on the trip. Cassidy said Monday that he wasn't sure who would start the opener in the crease, or if all three goalies would see time. Thomson last appeared in a game on February 9. He has a record of 20-13-3. Laurent Brossoit played in just three games. Roy hasn't been in the lineup since the Chicago game on February 21. Kolesar has been out of action for ten days and should find is spot available amongst fourth line starters on Tuesday. VGK has 12 games remaining and Cassidy said Monday that he wants to put the best lineup on the ice. There is a lot of competition to play right now with the healthy bodies returning. Vancouver, under new coach Rick Tocchet, has won eight of nine games. They are playing better, especially on the defensive side, since he took over. The Canucks are out of the playoff race, yet they are continuing to play solid hockey. Elias Petterson leads all scorers for Vancouver with 88 points, including 33 goals.
