The Phoenix Coyotes have lost the heart of their for the rest of Game 3.

Shane Doan left the game early in the second period to an "upper body injury" and is unlikely to return.

The Coyotes captain crashed the net and got tangled with Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall. Doan tumbled over netminder Jimmy Howard and into the boards. Doan was slow to get up and grimaced on his way to the Phoenix bench. He eventually headed to the team's locker room.

Through the first two games, Doan recorded two points and a league-leading 15 hits for the Coyotes.
