Mike Smith blocked 40 shots Tuesday night to add some fantasy value, but he let two get past in a 2-1 overtime loss of the Arizona Coyotes to the San Jose Sharks.

The loss might have been inevitable as Smith did not get much defensive help. He faced 13 shots in the first, 16 in the second, and 12 in the third versus 5-5-9 on the other end of the ice. For that reason, he was probably a little tired in overtime as it took just 19 seconds for Brent Burns to riffle the one and only shot of overtime past him.
