DETROIT - Phoenix Coyotes centre Shane Doan suffered what appeared to be an upper-body injury in the second period and did not start the third against the Detroit Red Wings.
Doan collided with Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard on his first shift of the second period Sunday, lost his balance and ran into the endboards. He later walked toward the dressing room and didn't play the rest of the period.
The Coyotes said he was doubtful to play in the third period because of an undisclosed injury.
Doan had a goal and an assist during the first two games, which were split in Phoenix, in the Western Conference first-round series. He led the Coyotes with 55 points during the regular season.
