He blocked his 36th shot at the buzzer. This was his second shutout of the season and the 32nd of his career. His most recent shutout came January 26 against Vancouver.

Mike Smith made 35 saves but allowed five goals in an overtime loss to Montreal on Thursday.

A high scoring thriller ended the wrong way for Smith who has now seen back-to-back starts with forty pucks shot his way. It's always risky to start to a Coyotes goalie and everyone should know that by now. Smith has a 2.92 GAA and .915 save percentage in 34 starts.
Feb 10 - 1:10 AM

Arizona will go with Mike Smith between the pipes on Thursday against Montreal.

Smith has performed quite well against Montreal in his career. He's posted a 4-2-3 record with a .933 save percentage as well as just 20 goals against. Considering Carey Price's recent struggles in the other crease, this could be another surprise quality start.
Feb 9 - 4:23 PM

While Mike Smith faces an up-and-down season overall, he irregularly throws together masterpiece performances, with Saturday's 3-2 shootout win against the San Jose Sharks ranking as another example.

He stopped 38 out of 40 SOG, another high-volume effort for a goalie who's shown a remarkable knack for hanging in there during lopsided games. The Sharks generated a 40-28 shot differential yet the cellar-dwelling Desert Dogs bested San Jose once more, with Smith being the main culprit.
Feb 5 - 1:58 AM

Mike Smith will be in net against the Sharks on Saturday.

Smith has defended the Sharks well this season. He's 1-0-1 with just four goals against in 87 combined shots. Considering how much the Arizona roster has been bolstered lately, this could be another quality game for the veteran netminder.
Feb 4 - 3:02 PM

Mike Smith allowed four goals on 26 shots in a 4-3 loss to Chicago on Thursday.

Smith was beaten early by vintage Patrick Kane in a first period where he allowed three goals on 16 shots. He battened down the hatch for the rest of the game, making some big saves to keep his team in a tight game but it wasn't enough. Even with a string of decent starts, Smith isn't a recommended start on most nights with the young team in front of him.
Feb 3 - 1:45 AM

Mike Smith will get the nod Thursday against Chicago.

Smith got the day off Wednesday and did not practice. His three-game winning streak came to an end Tuesday, but he still played well against Los Angeles with 36 saves on 39 shots. Smith has an 11-14-5 record this season with a 2.86 GAA and a .917 save percentage.
