Phoenix captain Shane Doan out for Game vs. Detroit
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Phoenix captain Shane Doan did not take part in the pregame warmup Friday night and will miss the pivotal Game 5 of the Coyotes' Western Conference Quarterfinal series with the Detroit Red Wings due to an undisclosed upper body injury.
 
Doan was injured in the first shift of the second period in Game 3 on Sunday in Detroit and has not played since. He returned to the ice Thursday and took part in about half the practice, avoiding any contact on the right shoulder that appeared to take the brunt of the impact when he fell and crashed into the end boards attempting to avoid prone Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard.
 
As expected, veteran defenseman Mathieu Schneider will make his debut in the series for Phoenix, who will dress seven defensemen in Game 5. Center Robert Lang, who saw limited action in Games 3 and 4 after missing six weeks due to injury, is a scratch.







Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
