Michalek, who's been teamed with Oliver Ekman-Larsson on the Coyotes' top defense pairing, took five shifts and played 4:31, blocking a shot by Marian Hossa at 3:03 of the first period. He took a couple more shifts after that but didn't return.
I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
