Luongo back in net for Canucks
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Roberto Luongo will start in goal for the Vancouver Canucks after Cory Schneider posted a 5-2 win against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.

Tonight's game is the second stop on the Canucks' six-game road trip, which also includes stops in Detroit, New Jersey, Dallas and Phoenix. With five games in the next eight days, Vigneault said he expects Schneider to get his share of starts.

Here is what the Canucks' lineup likely will look like tonight:

Mason Raymond - Ryan Kesler - David Booth
Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Alexandre Burrows
Chris Higgins - Cody Hodgson - Jannik Hansen
Manny Malhotra - Maxim Lapierre - Dale Weise

Dan Hamhuis - Kevin Bieksa
Alexander Edler - Sami Salo
Aaron Rome - Christopher Tanev

Roberto Luongo will start in goal, with Cory Schneider the backup.
Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
