Langkow, Aucoin return for Coyotes
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 on Tuesday.
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

It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
