Avalanche scratch 'underachieving' Jones, McGinn

DENVER -- Colorado Avalanche coach Joe Sacco is shaking up the lineup for the game Wednesday against the Dallas Stars at Pepsi Center, scratching healthy forwards David Jones and Jamie McGinn.

Jones has gone nine games without a point, and has three goals, four assists and a minus-10 rating in 26 games. McGinn has gone five games without a point, and has one goal and one assist in 14 games despite playing on the Avalanche's top line with Matt Duchene and PA Parenteau. McGinn has four goals, nine assists and a minus-10 rating in 28 games.

"It's a case of just underachieving," Sacco said after the morning skate.

Maple Leafs place Komisarek on waivers

TORONTO -- The Toronto Maple Leafs placed defenseman Mike Komisarek on waivers Wednesday.

Komisarek had a no-movement clause in his contract and had to waive it to allow the move. Komisarek would report to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League if he is not claimed by another team.

The 31-year-old was on the ice for the morning skate but was not available for comment.

Komisarek has no points and a plus-2 rating in four games this season. He last played Feb. 2, and has been a healthy scratch in 21 straight games.

Tampa Bay Lightning coach Guy Boucher said forward Ryan Malone is out indefinitely with a left-shoulder injury. Malone was hurt March 18 in a game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Forward Benoit Pouliot is "on the verge" of a return, according Boucher. The left wing, who is recovering from an upper-body injury, was on the ice for the morning skate with a red jersey.

Here is how the Lightning and Maple Leafs could line up when they meet Wednesday:

Eaves out vs. Wild, Red Wings recall Nyquist

DETROIT -- Considering the circumstances, Patrick Eaves is fortunate the aching jaw that will keep him out of Wednesday night's game against the Minnesota Wild (7:30 p.m., NBCSN) isn't a more serious injury.

Eaves was hit in the chin during a practice Tuesday by a puck that slid up his stick, and he left the ice after getting to his feet. Eaves went to see a doctor and had X-rays taken, which revealed no fractures. Further tests showed Eaves had instead sprained the Temporomandibular Joints located at both tips of his jaw.

Going Green at the Joe

The Red Wings face off against the Minnesota Wild at Joe Louis Arena on Wednesday March 20th for DTE Energy’s third annual 'Going Green Night'.

As part of the theme night, DTE Energy and the Red Wings will be giving away “Going Green” coolers and will be displaying “Going Green” facts throughout the game on the JLA scoreboard. The Joe will also welcome the 400 fans who won tickets to the game by entering an energy efficiency contest hosted by DTE.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.

— Capitals defenseman Mike Green on teammate Alex Ovechkin's highlight-reel goal against the Devils on Saturday
