Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan out of Game 7 with upper body injury

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes scratched injured captain Shane Doan from their lineup for Game 7 against the Detroit Red Wings.

Doan hasn't played since his right shoulder took the brunt of his collision with the endboards early in the second period of Game 3 in Detroit.

The forward is the only remaining member of the last Coyotes team to play a Game 7, in 1999 against St. Louis.

Doan had a goal and an assist in the first two games of this first-round series and led the Coyotes with 55 points in the regular season.

The winner of Tuesday night's game will play the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference semifinals.
