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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
