PITTSBURGH - Arizona Coyotes captain Shane Doan described Monday as horrendous, but Patric Hornqvist, Marc-Andre Fleury and the remaining Pittsburgh Penguins would likely disagree. 

Hornqvist scored his first NHL hat trick and Fleury earned his 43rd career shutout to help the Penguins defeat the Coyotes 6-0 at Consol Energy Center on Monday.

COYOTES (27-29-6) at PENGUINS (31-21-8)

TV: 7 p.m. ET; FS-A, ROOT, NHL.TV

PITTSBURGH - After a flurry of trades, the Arizona Coyotes' lineup will have a different look against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center on Monday. 

The Coyotes made their biggest move prior to the 2016 NHL Trade Deadline when they acquired forwards Alex Tanguay and Conner Bleackley, and defenseman Kyle Wood, from the Colorado Avalanche for forward Mikkel Boedker. In 62 games this season, Boedker was third on the Coyotes with 39 points.

The trade will impact Arizona's second line, where Boedker played right wing. The Coyotes held an optional morning skate Monday, so the exact change won't be known until pregame warm-ups.
