from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic,
“You never want to see one of your players take a hit to the head, but I thought it was great for us,” said coach Dave Tippett, whose squad stormed out for the third period and scored four goals. “It revved us up in the game. We got people engaged in the game then instead of sleepwalking through it.”
No penalty was called for Brown’s hit on Jovanovski, and it’s debatable whether the NHL will assess punishment after examining it. Jovanovski was playing the puck when Brown came in with a blindside shoulder check that connected with Jovanovski’s head.
Jovanovski also suffered a lower-body injury on the play, according to the Coyotes. He will be evaluated tomorrow, but Tippett believes Jovanovski will be fine.
