Smith a backbone in the net
6-1 WIN OVER COLORADO
Mike Smith continues to provide elite level goaltending for the Phoenix Coyotes. He made 38 saves in Monday's 6-1 win over Colorado. Mike was named the third star.
Smitty currently sits 7th in NHL save percentage at 92.7%. The Coyotes are a mere 2 points out of a playoff spot.
Smith has demonstrated why playing deeper in the net enables a goalie to be consistently in position. The following clip is a good example why this approach is so successful: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=35&id=150250
