Mike Smith couldn't get all the way through the Ottawa Senators' 7-2 shellacking of his Arizona Coyotes, as he was pulled early in the third period.
Smith allowed five goals on 20 shots while newly recalled backup Louis Domingue gave up two tallies on 11 shots in an ugly all-around day for the 'Yotes. Unless you're in a league that rewards poor play, it's hard to imagine much of a reason to have Smith on any roster. Jan 31 - 6:03 PM

Mike Smith could get the start in goal on Sunday as well as the Coyotes play a pair of games this weekend.

Smith will get the start on Saturday afternoon in Ottawa and coach Dave Tippett will decide his starting netminder for Sunday's contest in Montreal after the Senators game. Smith has played well since the All-Star break, giving up only four goals on 67 shots in two games against Philadelphia and Toronto. He is a mediocre 8-20-4 with a 3.41 GAA and a .890 save percentage but perhaps he is coming out of his season long slump.

Mike Smith will get the nod on Saturday against Ottawa.

This has been a rough season for Smith, but he turned aside 24 of 25 shots on Thursday. Maybe he can build on that and simultaneously get revenge on the Senators after they scored five goals against him on Jan. 10.

Mike Smith won his first game in seven tries as the Coyotes slipped past the slumping Maple Leafs 3-1 on Thursday night.

Mike Smith will get the start in Toronto against the Maple Leafs on Thursday.

Smith was born in Ontario and he will have several friends and family members in the crowd. This has been a nightmare of a season for Smith, who has posted some ugly numbers in 2014-15. The 32-year-old has 7-20-4 record with a 3.49 goals-against-average and a .889 save percentage.

Mike Smith did his best to hold off the Flyers on Tuesday, but he was saddled with a loss after he stopped 39 of 42 shots in a 4-3 shootout defeat.

Smith has really been snakebitten this year and can't even buy a win on a night when he actually puts together a decent performance. His record falls to an ugly 7-20-4 with the loss while his GAA is 3.49 and his save percentage is .889.
Jan 27 - 11:12 PM

Mike Smith will face the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

Through 31 appearances this season, Smith is 7-20-3 with a 3.60 GAA and and .887 save percentage. These stats make him either otherworldly in a reverse fantasy league that rewards leading the NHL in losses with 103 goals against, or not a viable fantasy option at all.

Mike Smith and the Coyotes were relentlessly attacked by the Blackhawks on Tuesday en route to a 6-1 loss.

Smith ceded six goals to the Hawks on a whopping 51 shots, proving how busy he was throughout the contest.

His record is now 7-21-3 while his GAA is 3.60 and his save percentage is .887.

Not much has gone well for Arizona this season, including their goaltending situation. They have now lost five consecutive games. Expect the Coyotes to ship some veterans out of town so they can start a full-out rebuild. Smith has an ugly 3.43 goals-against-average and a .887 save percentage.

Mike Smith set away 30 shots in the Coyotes’ 3-1 loss to Minnesota on Saturday night.

Zach Parise’s goal went in with the net empty. For better or worse, the job is Smith’s and only his for the rest of the season. The Coyotes will fare as well as their netminder does. And thus far, it hasn’t been good. Smith has an unsightly 3.45 goals-against average and .887 save percentage.

It was another rough start for Smith who gave up a very soft goal to Mikael Backlund just 63 seconds into the second period to open the scoring. Mark Giordano was also able to put a softy past him as well late in the third to put the game out of reach. Through 28 games, Smith now owns a dreadful 7-18-2 record with a .885 save percentage and a 3.51 GAA.
Jan 16 - 12:11 AM
