Veteran defenseman Derek Morris again didn't skate on his own or with the Coyotes at their practice on Friday and Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said he's still day-to-day in his recovery from an upper-body injury.
"He's been pretty good," coach Dave Tippett said. "He was fine the other night. It's not as if he hasn't played this year. He's played a lot for us and with the injuries to our blue line that we've had, he's a young player that's come along and given us quality minutes. He's a good puck-mover. Smart player."
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
