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

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
