Langkow, Aucoin return for Coyotes

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.

Langkow will replace Marc-Antoine Pouliot in the starting lineup and play between Lauri Korpikoski and Shane Doan.

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.
Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
