Another goalie is down for VGK. This time it's Laurent Brossoit as he was placed on the I.R. Tuesday. VGK is in a bind with 22 games remaining. Adin Hill is the new #1 goalie and Michael Hutchinson is his backup. We don't know when Logan Thompson will return and Brossoit, who has played very well since his call-up, will be out for a minimum of two games. VGK has more than $7 million in cap space and their priority should be to get a playoff tested goaltender. Wednesday night VGK will entertain Carolina in a battle of two divisional leaders. The Canes have had a couple of recent win streaks of seven and five games. Sebastian Aho and Martin Necas lead in point scoring for the Canes. Bruce Cassidy is familiar with Rod Brind'Amor, as the Hurricanes knocked Cassidy's Bruins out of the playoffs last season in seven games. We also talk about how many points VGK will need to make it into the playoffs this season.
