Mike Smith was a rock in the net for the Coyotes, making 48 saves in the 3-2 shootout win against the Sharks.

Smith was the reason the Sharks wound up with the two points. He faced 16 shots in the first, 15 in the second and 19 in the third. The Sharks are quietly 10-3-2 on the season and coach Dave Tippett has molded them into a confident group that sticks to the game plan. Smith hasn't lost since Oct. 18, though he has a dud a few games ago in which he didn't have a decision. The athletic netminder has a 2.87 goals-against average and .917 save percentage.

David Krejci (groin) isn't on injured reserve, according to Boston's official website.

Coach Claude Julien called Krejci a "possibility" for Wednesday's game against Minnesota and it looks like he could be back if taking him off injured reserve is any indication. The pregame warmup should tell us more. Krejci has missed 17 of Boston's last 19 games because of a groin injury.

John Gibson (groin) has been assigned to the minors.

He hasn't played since Oct. 30 because of a groin injury, which he suffered on Nov. 2 during warmups at Colorado. With Frederik Andersen and Ilya Bryzgalov in the fold for Anaheim, Gibson will be afforded some time to play in the minors. We wouldn't completely rule him out from returning to the NHL at some point, though.

Pittsburgh has summoned Jeff Zatkoff from the minors.

Marc-Andre Fleury is being tested for the mumps, so Zatkoff will join the big club as a precaution. He could back up Thomas Greiss on Thursday if Fleury is unable to play.

James Neal has been fined $2,000 for embellishment.

He's the first player that the NHL has given a fine to since they decided to crack down harder on embellishing and diving this season. Neal reportedly received a warning on Nov. 13 against St. Louis, but no penalty was called on that play. He was fined after he received a penalty on Dec. 13 versus San Jose.

Calgary has announced a multi-year contract extension for head coach Bob Hartley.

The Flames have lost six games in a row, but they have been surprisingly successful this year. The club owns a 17-14-2 record to rank them 15th overall in the NHL heading into Wednesday's action. Hartley is coaching in his third season with Calgary.

Eddie Lack will be in goal for Vancouver against Dallas on Wednesday.

He hasn't played since Dec. 7 when he was beaten four times on 45 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to Ottawa. Lack has a 2-3-2 record with a .911 save percentage and a 2.77 goals-against average this season.

Chris Kunitz (foot) participated in Wednesday's practice.

"He was back to take all drills except for contact drills, so that was the normal step," coach Mike Johnston said. "So he was into really the first step of coming back into practice. Tomorrow he'll do the game-day skate full out, then I don't expect that he's going to be playing at all tomorrow. And Friday will give us another chance to get a good quality practice for him." Kunitz has been out of commission since Nov. 29 with a foot fracture, but he's hoping to resume playing before Christmas.

Sidney Crosby (mumps) skated on his own before practice on Wednesday.

"He looked good on the ice. It was a full skate," said coach Mike Johnston. "He worked on some extra conditioning drills." He isn't infectious anymore and has resumed skating, so it probably won't be long before he's back in the lineup. Thursday's match against Colorado is a possibility.

Scott Darling has been reassigned to the minors.

The move was announced late on Tuesday. Darling has been excellent during his stints in the NHL this season. He owns a 5-2-0 record with a .937 save percentage and a 1.97 goals-against average. However, the Blackhawks will keep Antti Raanta as Corey Crawford's backup.

Ben Bishop (lower body) hopes to be back by the end of the week.

"I just tweaked something at the (end) of the first," Bishop said referring to the lower-body injury he sustained on Monday. "I just figured there was a minute, 15 (seconds) left so I could just wait until the intermission. Nothing serious and hopefully I can be back by the end of the week. We'll take it day-by-day." The Lightning will practice on Thursday and Bishop wants to be on the ice to test his ailment.

Devan Dubnyk stopped 31-of-32 shots faced in Arizona's 2-1 OT win over Edmonton on Tuesday night.

Dubnyk helped the Coyotes snap a nine game home losing streak by standing tall through regulation and overtime against an equally desperate Oilers squad. With Mike Smith really struggling, it's highly likely we see more of Dubnyk in the near future. The 28 year-old is 6-2-2 on the season with a respectable 2.56 goals against average to go with a .922 save percentage.
