    Coyotes' Connor Murphy: Confident he will play Friday

    Murphy (lower body) said he'll play Friday versus the Canucks, Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports. The physical winger missed Tuesday's game against the Bruins, but the ailment seems minor based on his own confidence that he'll lace his skates for Friday's contest. When healthy, Murphy is likely to pick up a modest amount of PIMs, but he needs to gain more experience before becoming much of a threat to score or deliver helpers.
