DETROIT (AP) -Red Wings defenseman Mathieu Schneider injured his forearm during the first period Saturday, removing him from Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against San Jose.
Schneider, who scored the overtime goal in San Jose on Wednesday that evened the series at 2, was hurt when checked by Sharks captain Patrick Marleau.
The Wings already were ailing on defense, with Brett Lebda out with an ankle injury. Rookie Kyle Quincey took Lebda's spot in the lineup.
