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.

Canucks call on Schneider to start against Blues

VANCOUVER -- Cory Schneider will be back in the Vancouver Canucks' goal against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday (10 p.m. ET, TSN) for the first time since March 10, and he's hoping to find an early rhythm after watching Roberto Luongo play the past four games, including a 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Monday.

"You always want to see shots early but it's a double-edged sword," Schneider said. "You don't want to see breakaways right away. You want to get in a rhythm and get busy and get your feet wet because it's been eight days."

The Canucks and Blues each will welcome back an important forward when they meet at Rogers Arena.

Bernier looks likely to get start Tuesday for Kings

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Jonathan Bernier likely will get a chance to stay perfect at home when the Los Angeles Kings finish a back-to-back home series against the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday.

Bernier was the first goalie off the ice at the Kings' optional skate Tuesday morning. He is 4-0-0 at Staples Center this season.

Coach Darryl Sutter probably wouldn't be questioned much if he went back to Jonathan Quick, who recorded his first shutout of the season with a 4-0 win Monday.

Laich looking to start at top speed

PITTSBURGH -- Washington Capitals coach Adam Oates repeatedly has asserted that he plans on easing forward Brooks Laich back into the lineup when his recovery from a groin injury was complete.

Now that the time has come for Laich to make his season debut, Washington's alternate captain isn't interested in slowly working his way into the lineup.

"We don't have the luxury of taking the time to get back into form," Laich said Tuesday, in advance of the Capitals' game against the Pittsburgh Penguins (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2). "I'm expected to be certain things when I'm on the ice, and anything less than that is not acceptable."

Laich has been activated from injured reserve and will play against the Penguins. It will be his first game action since November, when he injured his groin playing for a team in Switzerland.

"I have been in 'season mode' since September," Laich said. "I just want to make a seamless transition to be part of the team. I don't want this to be any sort of distraction to the guys or anything -- I'm just going to come in, play my game and try to contribute to a win."

Across the Capitals' locker room, it was clear Laich's return was welcomed. Washington (12-15-1) entered Tuesday seven points out of the Eastern Conference's eighth and final playoff spot.
