Coyotes Morris out for Game 1
Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said veteran defenseman Derek Morris would miss the quarterfinal series opener against Detroit on Wednesday night with an upper body injury and is day-to-day for a return.

Morris, who had five goals and 16 points in 77 games, spent a lot of time on the blue line with Keith Yandle this season. That means Tippett will be forced to find a comparable partner to pair with his offensive star in the top pairing.

Joining the active lineup will either be 23-year old David Schlemko (4 G, 14 points) or 19-year old rookie Oliver Ekman-Larsson (1 G, 11 points).
