Coyotes team scope

Arizona Coyotes captain Shane Doan remains one goal from 400 in his NHL career after going scoreless in a 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday. Doan also has 553 NHL assists and needs one to move past Thomas Steen for a new franchise record. Goalie Mike Smith will start for the Coyotes after Louis Domingue played Monday. Smith made 58 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets on Saturday. He's just been healthy," coach Dave Tippett told the Coyotes website. "Healthy and solid." Forward Anthony Duclair, who has one goal and four points, could play after he was made a healthy scratch for the first time Sunday. "Everybody will be ready," Tippett said. "We'll make our selections tonight." The Coyotes did not hold a morning skate. They are 0-2-2 in their past four games and were outshot 94-52 by the Blue Jackets in their past two. They're 15-for-17 killing penalties in their past three games.

Blackhawks team scope

Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will miss his seventh straight game with a reported back injury. Chicago is 3-2-1 without Toews and has been outshot in five of the six games he's missed. The Blackhawks have dropped from 14th in faceoff win percentage to 27th (48.0 percent) and have won 37.3 percent of 439 draws without their top center, including 10 of 32 while shorthanded (31.3 percent). Goalie Scott Darling makes his third start in place of Corey Crawford (appendectomy). Coach Joel Quenneville reworked the forward lines at the morning skate. Marcus Kruger was promoted to second-line center, Dennis Rasmussen filled Kruger's spot on the third line and rookie Vinnie Hinostroza centered the fourth line. "I think we've had some [different] lines over the last couple of games and we haven't generated enough," Quenneville said. "That's probably why we're trying to move things around. Hopefully we get a little more offense and a little more threat to score, not just the [second] line." The Blackhawks are coming off a 2-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets at United Center on Sunday, but are 10-2-2 on home ice and play seven of their next 10 games in Chicago.
