Smith had an easy night against the Panthers, but that has not guaranteed victory. This was the 11th time this season that he faced fewer than 30 shots and the first time that he won one of these contests. Smith takes a while to get into a proper rhythm. Jan 24 - 12:06 AM

Mike Smith will start Monday's match versus Florida.

He blocked 45 shots in a 5-3 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday. He has a 9-13-5 record this season with a 2.99 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage.

Mike Smith is an amazing 5-0-2 this season when facing at least 40 shots on goal.

Maybe that should be the Coyotes strategy as he is 4-13-3 when less than 40 shots are sent this way. He obviously enjoys being busy and it certainly shows in the stats this season. He is 9-13-5 with a 2.99 GAA and a .915 save percentage. He is a number three goalie at best in deep pools.
Jan 22 - 7:34 AM

Mike Smith faced a whopping 48 shots Saturday night and blocked all but three of them as the Coyotes beat the Lightning 5-3.

To say Smith performs well under pressure would be a bit of an understatement. This is the seventh time he has faced more than 40 shots. He has now won five of those contests and in the two games he lost, he gave up only two goals in each and took the game to overtime.

Mike Smith will take on the Lightning on Saturday.

Smith has just one victory over his last 11 starts, and just one game in which he's allowed fewer than three goals. Over that span he's 1-9-1 with 38 goals against with a .883 save percentage. You may wish to find a more favorable matchup.

Mike Smith was pulled in Wednesday's loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

The Coyotes actually held a 2-1 lead heading into the second period, but that's when things fell apart, as they allowed the Jets to score five unanswered goals in the second and third periods. Smith was given the hook after allowing six goals on 35 shots. He has an 8-13-5 record with a 2.99 goals-against-average and a . 914 save percentage this season. Louis Domingue entered the game in relief of Smith, and he stopped all four shots he faced.

Mike Smith will play between the pipes on Wednesday.

Smith might end up starting on Thursday too, but that determination will be made after Wednesday's contest. He has a 2.84 GAA and .918 save percentage in 26 starts this season.
Jan 18 - 1:31 PM

Mike Smith faced 27 shots Monday night and let three of them get past him as the Coyotes lost a 3-1 contest to the Oilers.

Smith snapped an eight-game losing streak Friday night against the Jets, but he was unable to sustain any momentum. During his losing streak, he faced 227 shots and gave up 26 goals for a save percentage of only .885. His momentary success netted a .919, but he was back to his old ways Monday night. With three goals on 27 shots, he was recorded a save percentage of .889, which was almost identical to what he logged this last month.

Look for Mike Smith to get the start in goal for Arizona Monday.

Smith is 15-2-1 lifetime against the Oilers and there likely won't be a better start to play him than against Edmonton. He is 8-11-5 this season with a 2.83 GAA and a .919 save percentage.
Jan 16 - 7:24 AM

Mike Smith stopped 34 of 37 shots in a 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Friday.

The win breaks Smith's eight-game losing streak. At 34 years old, he's still a quality NHL goaltender, just stuck on a very young Arizona Coyotes team. His 8-11-5 record and 2.83 goals against average are reasons we'd definitely avoid him if possible in the fantasy community. The silver lining in his season is his impressive .919 save percentage considering the circumstances that surround him.
Jan 14 - 12:28 AM

Mike Smith will try to end his eight-game slide against the Jets on Friday night.

Smith has collected just one standings point during the span, allowing 26 pucks through with an .885 save percentage. Yikes. Perhaps one ought to wait until he puts a couple of wins together.
Jan 13 - 7:09 PM

Mike Smith was selected as the Arizona Coyotes' lone participant in the 2017 All-Star Game.

"Kind of surprised and shocked," Smith said. "After all that set in, just really excited and honored to represent the Coyotes and the Valley." He has a 2.83 GAA and .918 save percentage in 24 starts this season. While those don't look like All-Star numbers, the Coyotes have struggled mightily this season and Smith has been largely solid under the circumstances.

Mike Smith had his stick break on him when he surrendered the game-winning goal in overtime Friday night.

"I make a good save coming across," Smith said. "They got three guys trapped deep. I'm not sure who it was. I think it might have been Vrby (Radim Vrbata) or Tobi (Rieder). I just saw a white stick flying out and going. I tried to just throw one past their forechecker there. My knob breaks. Obviously, the rest is history but when you're on a skid, little plays like that make a big difference. They're magnified." He admitted that he was trying to do too much and it ended up costing the team. It wouldn't be surprising if he started again on Saturday against the Islanders.
Jan 7 - 11:02 AM

Mike Smith stopped 32 of 35 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Smith tried to play the puck from his own crease to spring a forward on a breakaway but Ondrej Kase stole the puck from him with ease and buried it into the empty net with 36 seconds remaining in the overtime period. It's unfortunate because it ruined what was a very solid game for Smith in goal. The OT loss drops his record to 7-11-5, with a 2.83 goals against average and a very respectable .918 save percentage.
Jan 7 - 1:53 AM

Mike Smith will be in the crease Friday night against Anaheim as he tries to end his team's eight-game losing skid.

Mike Smith has been in net for seven of the eight consecutive losses Arizona has suffered. He's seen 23 pucks beat him and has a paltry .880 save percentage, with just a single game in which he allowed fewer than three goals. Yikes.
