Senators' forward Cory Conacher leaves briefly with injury
The Ottawa Senators lost forward Cory Conacher 8:19 into the second period Tuesday night when he was hit in the face by the stick of Phoenix center Martin Hanzal.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Ottawa Senators briefly lost forward Cory Conacher 8:19 into the second period Tuesday night when he was hit in the face by the stick of Phoenix center Martin Hanzal.

Hanzal caught Conacher in the face as the two crossed paths between the circles in the Phoenix zone. He went down to the ice and was bleeding immediately, but no penalty was called on the play. He was assisted off the ice and to the dressing room. However, he returned for the third period.

Conacher has one goal in Ottawa's first six games of the season.

The Coyotes played without defenseman Derek Morris, whose five points were tied for the team lead. He suffered a lower-body injury during Sunday's 5-3 road victory against the Carolina Hurricanes and was replaced in the lineup by David Schlemko.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.

— Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom in an interview with Washington Post about whether he will be able to play in 2015-16 opener
