Mike Smith will get the start against the Boston Bruins on Saturday evening.

Mike Smith's miserable season continues as he makes his 45th start and 46th appearance of the season, bringing his 10-29-5 record, .895 save percentage, 3.29 GAA, and league-leading 10 Really Bad Starts into the match. To wit, he's 3-8-0 in 12 career games versus Boston with 27 goals against.
Feb 28 - 5:24 PM

Mike Smith allowed four goals on 38 shots, including the game-winning goal with under three minutes to go in the third during a 4-3 loss to the Rangers.

Smith has now lost seven straight games and has allowed three or more goals in four of his past five games. His record during this awful season is 10-29-5 with a .895 save percentage and 3.29 goals against average.

Mike Smith will get the start against the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Smith owns a 10-28-5 record with a 3.27 GAA and .895 save percentage through 44 appearances this season. He also leads the league with 10 Really Bad Starts, or starts with a sub.-885 save percentage. You may want to find a more favorable matchup.

Mike Smith was again the victim of poor support Tuesday as he allowed five goals on 39 shots in a 5-1 loss to the Islanders.

Smith's 10-28-5 record is as ugly as it gets, but his 3.27 GAA and .895 save percentage are also damaging numbers in all formats. His struggles cannot be blamed on him alone, but whatever the reason, he simply can't be trusted right now.

Mike Smith will get the start on Tuesday against the New York Islanders.

Through 43 appearances this season, Smith holds a 10-27-5 record with a .896 save percentage and a 3.23 GAA. He's allowed the second most goals in the NHL (133, seven shy of Kari Lehtonen), he's also responsible for the most Really Bad Starts in the NHL with 10. RBS measures a start with a sub .885 save percentage, or stopping just 17 of every 20 shots.

Arizona goaltender Mike Smith blocked 25 of the 27 shots he faced Monday night but the Coyotes were blanked 3-0 by the Devils in New Jersey.

The Coyotes have now lost six consecutive games and must visit the very capable New York Islanders Tuesday night. Smith, one of the premier goalies in the NHL not all that long ago, has now lost five games in a row. His undefeated streak against the Devils ended Monday. He entered the game 3-0-2 in his previous five starts against New Jersey. Smith's goals-against average is now 3.23 and his save percentage is a not-very-impressive .896. His record isn't anything to boast about, either, at 10-27-5. It's been a tough season for Smith and his fantasy owners, if he has any left. It hasn't helped him that he's been playing with a subpar squad.

Mike Smith will be between the pipes Monday night versus the New Jersey Devils.

Smith will look for his first win in five starts after losing four straight. He makes for a good start against New Jersey though, as he is 3-0-2 with a 2.52 goals-against-average and .926 save percentage in five career starts against his Monday night opponent.
Feb 23 - 6:53 PM

Mike Smith gave up three goals on 26 shots in Arizona’s 4-2 loss to the Lightning on Saturdya night

The final goal was scored with Smith pulled. He has lost four games in a row, allowing 13 goals total in those games. While he has been much better in February, the wins upside remains very low for Smith. He has a 3.26 goals-against average and .895 save percentage this season.
Feb 21 - 10:43 PM

Mike Smith will get the start versus the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.

Before allowing five goals to the Rangers last Saturday night, Smith had been on a streak of six straight starts with three or fewer goals against. However, it's still difficult to recommend a goalie with 25 losses and 128 goals against in 41 games. He's also 2-2-0 with 16 goals against in four career starts versus his old club.
Feb 21 - 5:53 PM

Mike Smith gave up five goals on 33 shots in the Coyotes’ 5-1 loss to the Rangers on Saturday night.

If you tuned out after the first two periods, you probably thought Smith was having a good night as the netminder blocked 18 of 19 shots. It all came undone in the third period, however. Smith has a 3.27 goals-against average and .896 save percentage this season.
Feb 14 - 10:38 PM

After a poor start on Friday night, Mike Smith will get the nod against the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

For his career, Smith is 0-3-1 with 10 goals against on 122 shots over four games on the back end of consecutive nights of play. The Rangers are the eighth highest scoring team in the league coming into Saturday with the fourth best goal differential. Combine all of that with Smith's 10-24-5 record with 123 goals against in 40 games this season, and you may want to find a more favorable matchup.
Feb 14 - 4:37 PM

Mike Smith was beaten three times on 25 shots in Arizona's 4-2 loss to San Jose on Friday night.

While one could forgive Joe Pavelski's opening tally as Smith was able to get across the crease in time, he was beaten over his shoulder for the following two goals. Something the 6'4" netminder can't allow. He's now 10-24-5 with 123 goals against in 40 games this season.
Feb 14 - 12:14 AM

Mike Smith will get the start against San Jose on Friday night.

Smith's season has been abysmal, we know this. But he's been far better over his last seven starts where he's allowed two or fewer goals six times. A route that includes St. Louis, Chicago, and Detroit. Sometimes the best play is merely the hottest hand, even if it carries an overall record of 10-23-5 with 120 goals against in 39 games this season.
Feb 13 - 7:48 PM

Mike Smith put forth another strong effort Tuesday, but was saddled with a defeat as the Coyotes lost to St. Louis by a score of 2-1.

The weakness of Smith's supporting cast is beginning to show through as the hulking goaltender has won just two of his last five starts despite allowing two or fewer goals in each of them. His 10-23-5 record is an unfair representation of who he has played, as are his 3.22 GAA and his .897 save percentage.
