GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Forward Matt Hendricks left the Nashville Predators' game against the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Hendricks scored his first goal of the season to trigger Nashville's three-goal first period. But on the opening shift of the second period, Hendricks took a hard hit from Phoenix defenseman Derek Morris. He skated off and did not return. Phoenix won the game 5-4 in a shootout.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
