Coyotes’ Doan, Morris avoid suspension from NHL

The Phoenix Coyotes are down 2-0 and have been woefully
out-played in the Western Conference Finals by the Los
Angeles Kings.

They’re heading to Los Angeles for games three and four.

Let’s face it, this is a hockey team in need of some good
news, and on Wednesday, the Coyotes got some concerning
their captain Shane Doan courtesy of NHL discipline chief
Brendan Shanahan.

Doan was called for boarding L.A.’s Trevor Lewis and
received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the
play. Phoenix lost Game 2, 4-0.

‘No SD’ means no supplementary discipline — Doan will
avoid suspension and be on the ice Thursday night at
Staples Center as the Coyotes try to dig their way out of
a deep hole in the series.

Phoenix defenseman Derek Morris was called for a kneeing
penalty on Kings’ defenseman Rob Scuderi in the third
period Tuesday night. Shanahan had a comment on that as
well:

However, Shanahan is expected to rule later Wednesday on
possible supplemental discipline for Coyotes center Martin
Hanzal, who also received a boarding major and game
misconduct for planting L.A. captain Dustin Brown into the
glass during Tuesday’s third period.
