The Coyotes also struggled to get anything going offensively against the stingy Predators, and lost the game 3-0. The loss dropped Phoenix to 6-6-2 on the year and 9th in the West, pending the results of other Thursday night games. If Morris's injury keeps him out of the lineup long-term, Phoenix may be in for some trouble in the ultra-competitive Pacific Division.
