GLENDALE, Ariz. - Coyotes captain Shane Doan is out for Game 5 of Phoenix's Western Conference first-round series against the Detroit Red Wings because of an upper body injury.

Doan's status was a game-time decision on Friday night. He also sat out on Tuesday when Detroit tied the series 2-2 with a 3-0 victory in Game 4 at home.

Doan was injured in the second period of Game 3 on Sunday when he stumbled over Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard and crashed into the boards. He participated in the first half of practice on Thursday but wasn't on the ice for Friday's morning skate.

The Coyotes added defenceman Mathieu Schneider to their lineup for the first time in the series. He replaces forward Robert Lang.
