Phoenix Coyotes center Matthew Lombardi suffered an injury in Thursday night's 5-3 loss at San Jose, and Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said in a radio interview on Friday he might out awhile. "Matthew got injured last night and may be out for a significant amount of time," Maloney said on SiriusXM NHL radio. Maloney did not specify Lombardi's injury or how it occurred. He left the ice for good after a 14-second shift in the second period. Lombardi has a history of head injuries, although there is no indication that he sustained a head injury Thursday. Lombardi had eight goals and 10 assists in 62 games last season for Toronto, and has two assists in four games for Phoenix this season. The Coyotes have called up Nick Johnson from the AHL club in Portland.

GLENDALE, Ariz. Did the Coyotes get a little too confident following last season's sprint to the Western Conference final?
Are they experiencing a hangover after unprecedented playoff success?
Has the lockout impacted them more than other teams because their success is predicated on a finely-tuned defensive system that requires practice time?
Whatever theory you subscribe...
The Phoenix Coyotes ended San Jose's lengthy reign as Pacific Division champions in 2011-12, but the Sharks have shown that they may be ready to reclaim that crown. Until their most recent game, the Coyotes didn't have the look of a team that was poised to repeat.
