The Coyotes haven't played since the 18th so it is no surprise that Smith will be between the pipes today. The Coyotes have a back-to-back today and tomorrow and it sounds like Smith will start both games. Since returning from injury Smith has lost only twice in regulation and once in a shootout. He has been great lately posting a 1.55 GAA and .948 SV% in his last five starts. He has a great matchup today vs. an Oilers team struggling to score.
