Enver Lisin was a healthy scratch for nine straight games before suiting up for the Coyotes on Monday night.
The move appeared to motivate the 22-year-old Russian as he lit up the scoreboard for two goals and one assist in the Coyotes' 6-5 overtime win over the Stars. "It was very nice to get back to the lineup and play a game," Lisin said. "I was so excited today and tried to do my best. It's not the first time. You just have to be a professional, practice good and wait for your chance."
