Ryan Stanton and Linden Vey will be scratched for Game Five against Calgary on Thursday night.

Stanton hasn't seen any playoff action through the first five games, and if Vancouver loses again, he won't see any playoff action at all as Vancouver will be eliminated. Vey meanwhile played just 9:59 while sending two shots on net during his one game of work, Tuesday's 3-1 Game Four loss.

Ryan Stanton and Brandon McMillan will join Alex Burrows and Sven Baertschi in the press box to watch Game Four against Calgary on Tuesday night.

Perhaps ironically, it's McMillan who has some NHL playoff experience as he scored a goal and an assists over six games with Anaheim in 2010-11. Although neither player would be advisable for your fantasy roster even in a spot-start.
