Projected lineups for Coyotes, Blackhawks
Here is how the lineups may look on Monday night for the Coyotes (13-9-3) and Blackhawks (16-8-3):

Ray Whitney - Martin Hanzal - Radim Vrbata
Mikkel Boedker - Daymond Langkow - Shane Doan
Taylor Pyatt - Boyd Gordon - Lauri Korpikoski
Raffi Torres - Kyle Turris - Patrick O'Sullivan

Keith Yandle - Derek Morris
Rostislav Klesla - David Schlemko
Oliver Ekman-Larsson - Adrian Aucoin

Mike Smith will get the start in net for Phoenix, while Jason LaBarbera will be on the bench.

The Coyotes did not skate forward lines during their morning skate on Monday, so coach Dave Tippett might opt to use forward Kyle Chipchura somewhere on the fourth line after scratching him the past two games in favor of Turris.

Daniel Carcillo - Jonathan Toews - Patrick Kane
Patrick Sharp - Marcus Kruger - Marian Hossa
Ben Smith - Dave Bolland - Michael Frolik
Viktor Stalberg - Jamal Mayers - Andrew Brunette

Duncan Keith - Nick Leddy
Niklas Hjalmarsson - Nick Leddy
Sean O'Donnell - Steve Montador

Corey Crawford will start in net, while Ray Emery will be on the bench.
Quote of the Day

Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
