Mike Smith didn't get his third win in a row, but he was once again great as the Arizona Coyotes fell 3-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Smith stopped 43 out of 46 shots as he continues to resemble an elite goalie (minus the wins) in March. It's an odd development for what's otherwise been a miserable season for the 33-year-old.
Mar 28 - 5:05 PM

Mike Smith will get the start against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday afternoon.

Smith comes in with a 13-37-5 record, a .902 save percentage and a 3.16 goals against average. He's won two straight games, but continues to lead the league losses, goals against (170), and Really Bad Starts (11). Smith is 4-6-0 in 11 career starts versus Pittsburgh with two shutouts and 23 goals against.
Mar 27 - 9:04 PM

Mar 27 - 12:53 AM

Mike Smith will get the start vs. Buffalo on Thursday.

The 33-year-old has posted some rough numbers this season. He has a 12-37-5 with a 3.17 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage.
Mar 26 - 5:40 PM

Mike Smith is projected to start against the Buffalo Sabres.

The Sabres have an anemic offense, so they're usually a friendly team for opposing goaltenders. Smith has a 3.17 GAA and .902 save percentage in 55 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 25 - 1:47 PM

Mike Smith made 33 saves in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime victory over the Red Wings.

It was an ugly game for both teams, but Smith could only cover up so many defensive mistakes. Then again, he wound up with the win, and that's all that matters at the end of the day. Smith's record now improves to 12-37-5 with a .902 save percentage and a 3.17 GAA.
Mar 25 - 2:22 AM

Mike Smith will get the start against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

Smith comes in leading the league with 163 goals against, and an 11-37-5 record across 54 games this season. He also leads the league in losses and 11 Really Bad Starts, with just 25 Quality Starts to his credit. Smith has gone 2-3-2 with 18 goals against in eight career starts versus the Red Wings while with the Coyotes.
Mar 24 - 5:45 PM

Mike Smith stopped 41 of 43 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Vancouver.

Smith allowed just one goal in the first two periods but he was beat late in the third period (the Canucks also added an empty netter). The 33-year-old has just one win in his last 16 decisions, which is almost unheard of in the NHL. It's hard to only point the finger at the Coyotes' goaltender. Arizona doesn't have much talent in front of Smith. His record now falls to 11-37-5 and he has a 3.15 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage in 2014-15. No goaltender has piled up more losses this season.
Mar 22 - 11:00 PM

Mike Smith will get the start against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night.

The Coyotes come in nestled neatly between the Sabres and Oilers with a three point gap on either side for 29th overall place in the standings. Just how much of it is attributable to Mike Smith is up for debate, but he comes in with a 11-36-5 record with a .901 save percentage and a 3.18 GAA regardless. He also leads the league with 36 losses, 11 Really Bad Starts, and 161 goals against.
Mar 22 - 5:19 PM

Mike Smith sticked away 34 of 36 shots in the Coyotes’ 3-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday night.

Smith allowed both goals in the second period, less than four minutes apart. Though he has been much better lately, Smith has now lost five games in a row. Slowly his stats are improving. He has a 3.18 goals-against average and .901 save percentage.
Mar 21 - 11:52 PM

Mike Smith is likely to get the start when the Coyotes entertain the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday night.

Smith is expected to start after Louis Domingue played in a 5-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday. Smith had a terrible start but hasn't been too bad lately. He has a 2.75 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage in 21 games since the All-Star break. He has a 2.16 GAA and a .938 save percentage in six March starts.
Mar 21 - 7:52 PM

With his strong performance on Monday, Mike Smith's save percentage has climbed to .900.

Smith endured a horrible start to the 2014-15 campaign, but he's gotten significantly better in recent months. He has a 2.75 GAA and .917 save percentage in 21 contests since the All-Star break as well as a 2.16 GAA and .938 save percentage in six March starts. "I felt like I've been big in the net and kind of been more patient and when I've had times to challenge and to get out and be more aggressive, I've done that," Smith said. "But I think I've managed the game pretty well the last little while." It will be interesting to see if he can take the momentum from his hot finish into the 2015-16 campaign.
Mar 19 - 9:13 AM

Mike Smith stopped 34 of 35 shots in Monday's 1-0 loss to Los Angeles.

It's been a rough season for Smith, whose numbers are absolutely brutal. Tonight, he deserved a better fate but his teammates were unable to beat Kings' goaltender Jonathan Quick. Smith has now lost four consecutive starts but he has allowed just eight goals combined in those four games. The 32-year-old now has a 11-35-5 record with a 3.20 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage. The numbers might be ugly, but he could be an interesting sleeper candidate next season.
Mar 17 - 1:20 AM

Mike Smith will get the call in net Monday night in Los Angeles.

Smith leads the league in losses with 34 and has yet to record a shutout in 51 games played this season. He carries an ugly 3.24 goals-against-average and .898 save percentage on the year and in his only start against the Kings earlier this season, he gave up three goals on just 20 shots in the loss. He shouldn’t be rostered in any fantasy leagues right now.
