DETROIT - Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan will miss Game 4 of the Western Conference playoffs against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night because of an upper-body injury.

The forward left Game 3 on Sunday when he stumbled over Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard and went crashing into the boards during the second period.

Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said Doan remains day-to-day.

Vernon Fiddler, who missed Game 3 with a shoulder injury, will return to the lineup for the Coyotes.

They lead the first-round series 2-1.
