GLENDALE, Ariz. – Phoenix center Martin Hanzal became the second Phoenix Coyote to earn a game misconduct in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals after he was called for boarding Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown at 11:01 of the third period at Jobing.com Arena.

Brown, who has drawn Phoenix's ire with his physical play in the first two games of the series, was initially shaken, but left the ice on his own.

Phoenix center Antoine Vermette and Los Angeles forward Dustin Penner are also done for the game after earning 10-minute misconduct calls at 13:18

Hanzal joined Phoenix captain Shane Doan, who was given a game misconduct for a hit from behind against Los Angeles' Trevor Lewis in the second period.

Quote of the Day
