GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Michal Rozsival smiled when asked if he had any concerns about playing back-to-back games just one week after returning to the Coyotes lineup.

You cant do anything but rest, said Rozsival, who took a puck to the face in the first period of the season opener at San Jose and missed two months with recurring symptoms.
