GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Coyotes center Daymond Langkow will return to the lineup Tuesday, five days after being hit in the face by a puck off the stick of Detroit's Jiri Hudler, as Phoenix faces the Ottawa Senators.
The Coyotes will also have defenseman Adrian Aucoin back in the lineup. Aucoin has missed the last four games with a lower-body injury and a total of 10 of the last 17 games with various injuries. He replaces Derek Morris, who suffered a lower-body injury in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay.
We were thinking about Rich back home, but I thought we did a great job getting mentally ready for this game. We're still in a big playoff push and we found a way to get two points. It's not easy. It hit our guys pretty good [Monday] night. We did a great job as a group.
