Shane Doan had a night to remember when the Phoenix Coyotes took on the LA Kings on Tuesday night. Despite the fact the Coyotes dropped the contest by a score of 3-2, Doan was easily the most impressive player on the ice.  Just how impressive was Doan's performance? We'll let his stats do the talking. Doan scored both of Phoenix's two goals and was a +1 on the night. He fired 11 shots. He was also a menace when it came to the physical side of the game, throwing 13 hits.  Let's put this in perspective.  Phoenix launched 42 shots in their loss against the Kings. Of those 42, Doan was personably responsible for 11, or just over 26% of them. As a team, the Coyotes had 38 hits. Of those 38, Doan was responsible for 13, or just over 34% of them.  Doan was out on the ice for just under 19 minutes in his team's 3-2 defeat. You'll be hard pressed to find a more productive 19 minutes from an NHL player the rest of the season. It's truly a shame that the rest of his teammates weren't able to play at a similar level and that Doan was on the losing end of things on a night where he posted one of the most impressive lines in his NHL career.  Simply incredible work from the captain.  [follow]
