Mike Smith G PHO 16 Days

Smith will be in the net Tuesday against the Flames, Todd Walsh of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

Coach Dave Tippett will stick with Smith for both ends of the Coyotes' back-to-back after the netminder held the Oilers to two goals on 27 shots Monday night to capture the win. The victory snapped a six-game losing streak for Smith, who should see continued opportunities to work through his off-and-on struggles and hold off Devan Dubnyk for regular duties.

Smith allowed two goals on 27 shots Monday against Edmonton to pick up his first win in seven starts.

Smith had some decent starts during the losing streak, but also had four starts in which he allowed more than three goals. His numbers on the season (3.19 goals against and 89.4% save percentage) are terrible, which is resulting in some pressure from backup Devan Dubnyk. But, the Coyotes are committed to Smith as their starter and perhaps finally getting a win will get him back on track.

Smith will start Monday's game against the Oilers, Todd Walsh of Fox Sports Arizona reports.

Smith has lost his last seven starts for the struggling Coyotes, and currently leads the NHL with 11 regulation losses. The team in front of him hasn't been great, but he'll need to improve his .893 save percentage if he wants to continue to be a viable fantasy option in net.

Smith allowed four goals on 35 shots in Tuesday's loss to Arizona.

With yet another loss, Smith falls to 0-6-1 in his last seven starts. Yikes. He's had a couple good starts mixed in there, but four-plus-goal outings like this have been far from unusual for Smith this year.

Smith is set to start Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Smith was the first goalie off the ice following Tuesday's morning skate, which puts him on track to start Tuesday. He will attempt to stop a six-game losing streak against a Colorado squad that is averaging just 2.43 goals per game on the season but has scored at least three times in five of its last seven games.

Smith lost for the sixth straight game Sunday, giving up two goals on 30 shots against Anaheim.

While Smith played great in the loss, the goaltending situation developing in Arizona is quite interesting. Although Smith is the clear No.1 goalie, backup Devon Dubnyk has outplayed him thus far, posting a 5-0-1 record. Don't be worried though, as Smith played well enough Sunday to remind us why we put our faith in him in the first place. The wins will come sooner or later.

Smith will the starting goalie Sunday according to Coach Dave Tippet.

Smith has been badly outplayed by backup Devan Dubnyk this year and although there is no sign of an imminent goalie controversy it is not sustainable for Smith to be so bad without losing playing time.

Smith took his fifth consecutive loss Thursday, giving up three goals on 27 shots against the Stars.

Two days after posting a respectable performance in an overtime loss to Washington, Smith got back to putting up unpleasant stat lines. At this point, Devan Dubnyk -- who's easily outplayed Smith, especially lately -- has to be getting serious consideration for some extended run in goal.

Smith led the Coyotes on to the ice for pregame warmups and will be in the crease Thursday against the Stars, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Though riding a four-game losing streak, Smith was steady his last time out Tuesday against the Capitals, stopping 22 of 24 shots before falling in overtime. He'll look to get back in the win column against his former team, against whom he's posted a 7-4-5 record, 2.09 GAA and .925 save percentage over his 16 previous career outings.

Smith allowed two goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Capitals.

Smith turned in a much-needed strong outing in this one, but failed to bring home a win for the fourth consecutive start. The strong effort will help him hold off Devan Dubnyk for No. 1 duties, but Smith will need to continue turning in solid work to prevent the Coyotes from turning to Dubnyk, who's collected half of the team's eight wins so far despite starting just five games to Smith's 14.
