Smith made 34 saves on 36 shots in Saturday's loss to the Penguins.

Another great game from Smith, who has stopped 68 of the last 71 shots he's faced. Unfortunately, he's not getting much support and has now lost 14 of his last 15 games, dropping his record to 11-36-5 on the season. While his rate stats are trending upwards, Smith has a league-high 36 losses and is the starter on a team that just can't seem to win.

Smith is likely to receive the start for Saturday's game against the Penguins.

Smith gave way to rookie Louis Domingue in the Coyotes' last game Thursday against the Avalanche, which resulted in a 5-2 loss. With a four-game losing streak and losses in 13 of his past 14 starts, Smith simply can't be counted on to deliver promising results Saturday, despite the ratio improvement he's shown in defeat the last few times out.

Smith stopped 34 of 35 shots he faced Monday, but took a tough luck 1-0 loss at the hands of the Kings.

Although Smith has allowed two or fewer goals in four of his last five starts, this was his fourth loss in a row and his 13th loss in his last 14 starts. With the Coyotes looking toward the future there will be a lot of tough nights for the veteran goalie and his fantasy value is as low as it has ever been since he arrived in Arizona.

Smith is on track to start Monday's game against the Kings, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Smith suffered his third straight loss Saturday against the Devils, allowing four goals on 29 shots.

With the defeat, Smith now has 34 losses this season -- the most in the NHL. While Smith had been playing well of late, the Coyotes don't score much, so Smith has managed just one win in his last 13 games. His .898 save percentage appears to be somewhat improving, but if you're looking for wins, Smith isn't your man.

Smith was excellent Thursday, stopping 42 of 44 shots against Chicago, but ended up with a hard-luck loss.

Meanwhile, Corey Crawford faced only 18 shots on the other end, so the Coyotes clearly didn't hold up their end of the bargain. Smith has now dropped 11 of his last 12 starts, although he's been terrific over the last three.
