Coyotes' Morris leaves with injury
The Phoenix Coyotes lost defenseman Derek Morris to an undisclosed injury in the first period of a game Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes lost defenseman Derek Morris to an undisclosed injury in the first period of a game Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks at Jobing.com Arena.

Morris played only 3:05 of the first period before heading to the dressing room. He came back to the bench later in the period, but did not return to the game, which the Coyotes won 3-2 in a shootout.

Morris was off to a great start this season with four goals and 10 points in the first 15 games.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
