NHL.com @NHL
Joel Quenneville should have the hometown crowd on his side at the RBC Center this weekend.

The Chicago coach, as well as his assistant, Mike Haviland, was assigned to coach Team Staal -- captained by Carolina's Eric Staal -- throughout All-Star Weekend.

Vancouver's Alain Vigneault and Philadelphia's Peter Laviolette, meanwhile, will coach Team Lidstrom, which is captained by Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom.

The coaching assignments were determined after a coin-flip ceremony Friday afternoon.

Quenneville and Haviland were named as All-Star coaches as a reward for guiding Chicago to the 2010 Stanley Cup Championship. Laviolette and Vigneault, meanwhile, were rewarded for having the top team in their respective conference as of Jan. 8. Both teams still hold those positions at the All-Star break.
