Coyotes team scope

The Arizona Coyotes did not skate on Friday but coach Dave Tippett told the teams website that forward Tobias Rieder, who didn't play in a 3-2 shootout win against the Nashville Predators on Thursday, would be a game-time decision. Forward Martin Hanzal and defenseman Michael Stone also did not play, and Tippett said they didn't travel with the team to Anaheim. Anthony Duclair ended his scoring drought with a game-tying goal. "[Duclair] had some good chances last game, so you knew it was just a matter of time before he was going to capitalize on some," Tippett told after the game. "So that was a timely goal for him, timely two goals for him."

Ducks team scope

The Anaheim Ducks are still without their captain, Ryan Getzlaf, and his linemate, Nick Ritchie, who were each ruled out for the game with an upper-body injury. This will be the second straight game they have missed. "Everybody is faced with the challenge of injuries," coach Randy Carlyle said. "We were planning on having players that were going to be unavailable, but you don't limit them until it actually happens. They're two big players in our lineup but there's an opportunity for some others to move up in the lineup and show us what they've got." Last season, the Ducks struggled to slow down the speedy young forwards of the Coyotes. In five games, Max Domi scored three goals and assisted on four and Duclair had a hat trick in Anaheim. The Ducks have lost their past two home games, getting outscored 9-1. "That's part of the wave of skill and speed that's in the NHL now," Carlyle said. "Don't allow them to play that give-and-go game because that's where they really survive and they thrive in that."

Coyotes projected lineup

Max Domi -- Jordan Martinook -- Radim Vrbata
Jamie McGinn -- Dylan Strome -- Anthony Duclair
Laurent Dauphin -- Brad Richardson -- Shane Doan
Lawson Crouse -- Christian Dvorak -- Ryan White

Oliver Ekman-Larsson -- Alex Goligoski
Jakob Chychrun -- Connor Murphy
Kevin Connauton -- Brayden Schenn

Louis Domingue
Justin Peters

Scratched: none

Injured: Tobias Rieder (lower-body), Martin Hanzal (lower-body), Michael Stone (upper-body), Mike Smith (lower-body), Dave Bolland (lower-body)

Ducks projected lineup

Michael Sgarbossa -- Rickard Rakell -- Corey Perry
Andrew Cogliano -- Ryan Kesler -- Jakob Silfverberg
Joseph Cramarossa -- Antoine Vermette -- Ondrej Kase
Ryan Garbutt -- Chris Wagner -- Jared Boll

Cam Fowler -- Josh Manson
Clayton Stoner -- Sami Vatanen
Kevin Bieksa -- Korbinian Holzer

John Gibson
Jonathan Bernier

Scratched: none

Injured: Ryan Getzlaf (upper-body), Nick Ritchie (upper-body), Nate Thompson (achilles), Simon Despres (concussion symptoms)

Status report

Carlyle said he expected to use the same skaters he did on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins but there were changes in morning line rushes. Sgarbossa skated on the top line with Rakell and Perry and Kase was with Cramarossa and Vermette. … Ducks defenseman Shea Theodore was sent to San Diego of the American Hockey League on Thursday. Holzer will take his place in the lineup. … Ducks defenseman Jacob Larsson was returned to Frolunda HC of the Swedish Elite League. … Gibson was the first goalie off the ice and is expected to start his ninth straight game. He's allowed nine goals in the last two games at Honda Center. ... Tippett said Domingue would start.

Who's hot

Ekman-Larsson has five points in the past five games. … White has three points in the past four games. … Domi has six points in the past seven games. … Kesler has four points in the past four games. … Fowler leads Anaheim with three power-play goals. … Vatanen is one point from surpassing Ruslan Salei for sole possession of eighth place on the franchise's all-time scoring list for defensemen (105).
