Flames and Coyotes play without injured captains
The Calgary Flames and Phoenix Coyotes were without their captains Mark Giordano and Shane Doan, respectively, Tuesday night at Jobing.com Arena.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Calgary Flames and Phoenix Coyotes were without their captains Tuesday night at Jobing.com Arena.

Coyotes captain Shane Doan was unable to make the pregame skate after suffering a lower-body injury in Saturday's victory against Detroit. Kyle Chipchura replaced Doan on Antoine Vermette's line for Phoenix, with Brandon Yip taking his place in the lineup and making his Coyotes debut.

Calgary was without captain Mark Giordano, who has nine points in his first eight games this season. The veteran defenseman came out for warmups but skated off quickly and was replaced by Christopher Breen, who made his NHL debut. Giordano was hit hard by Los Angeles Kings Matt Greene and Colin Fraser during the Flames' 3-2 win in L.A. on Monday.

Forward David Jones also returned to the Flames' lineup after missing four games with a shoulder injury. Tim Jackman and Brian McGrattan were scratched for Calgary.

Quote of the Day

I'm sure [my father] was going crazy up there. I hope all of my friends were celebrating in the crowd. Coming back here and all of my friends and family are here, getting a goal in front of them is special.
