No Green, Brouwer for Capitals at morning skate

The Washington Post is reporting the Washington Capitals had nine defensemen on the ice for Tuesday morning's practice, but Mike Green was not among them.

Green sat out the March 2 game at the Winnipeg Jets due to a groin injury, and the newspaper is reporting it's unlikely he plays Tuesday against the visiting Boston Bruins.

The Post also is reporting that forward Troy Brouwer was not on the ice Tuesday morning due to illness, putting his availability for Tuesday's game in question.

Coyotes try to make it two straight over Ducks

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- After a very wild, sloppy and spirited game Saturday that featured four ties, several tussles, lots of trash talk and a shootout, the Phoenix Coyotes and Anaheim Ducks will play the second of three straight games against each other tonight at Jobing.com Arena.

The Coyotes prevailed Saturday for a 5-4 shootout win, with Steve Sullivan tying the game with 6:29 left in regulation and securing the extra point with the only goal of the shootout. The Ducks were playing back-to-back nights and for the fifth time in seven days, so the Coyotes are expecting an even bigger push from one of the NHL's elite teams tonight.

The teams meet again Wednesday in Anaheim.

"It's a little like a playoffs series," Coyotes forward Lauri Korpikoski said. "And you know they will have some rest and come back hard. We have to be ready."

Maple Leafs could get Frattin back vs. Devils

TORONTO -- Whether forward Matt Frattin returns to the Toronto Maple Leafs lineup will be a game-time decision according to senior vice-president and general manager Dave Nonis. Frattin has not played since Feb. 11 because of a knee injury, but was on the ice at the morning skate.

If he does play, he is expected to skate on a line with Nazem Kadri and Clarke MacArthur. Kadri, coming off his first career hat trick, is excited at the prospect of reuniting with Frattin.

"I can't wait, I've been waiting for him to come back since he went down," Kadri said. "He is a good player and obviously we have some chemistry together and hopefully we pick up where we left off."

In the event Frattin is unable to play, it is likely that Jay McClement will be inserted on the wing and David Steckel will center the fourth line between Colton Orr and Frazer McLaren.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
