Charlie McCoy scored in the 11th round of the shootout to lift the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night.
Hanzal has one goal and two assists in 17 games this season.
“I feel for Marty,” Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock told NHL.com. “This is the third or fourth time just as he gets up to speed and starts to really look good, (and) there is an injury. You feel for a guy like that. He wants to do well and it just seems that in the game he has the most impact, he gets hurt.”
The Stars moved to 11-9-1 on the year after Tuesday’s win but are 3-7-1 on the road.
Hitchcock said he believes his team will get better from its middling start.
“I see a team forging an identity,” Hitchcock told the Dallas News. “It’s a process. I’m really enjoying the process, because I’m seeing a team emerge. It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be very challenging, and we’ve got a long way to go.”
Giants coach Ben McAdoo on the loss to the previously winless 49ers: “The thing that was disappointing that showed up on film is the desire to finish on a consistent basis. There were plays we were capable of making and the desire to finish wasn’t consistent… We’re disappointed, but determined. We’re all in this thing together as coaches, as players, and I’m not here to throw anyone under the bus today, whether it’s a coach, whether it’s a player.”
Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn on his six sacks in Sunday’s 27-7 win over the Cowboys: “I’m no Everson Griffen or somebody like that, my pass rush isn’t as good as (his). But I play the same way every game. It lucked out for me today. I only have one move and it works.”
Danny Green followed that by hitting consecutive 3-pointers to stretch the lead to 90-79 with 3 minutes remaining.
Reserve forward John Collins led Atlanta with 21 points and Taurean Prince added 18. Former Spurs center Dewayne Dedmon had 11 points, including nine in the opening quarter.
