News: Smith allowed four goals on 35 shots in Tuesday's loss to Colorado. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith is set to start Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith lost for the sixth straight game Sunday, giving up two goals on 30 shots against Anaheim. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith will the starting goalie Sunday against the Ducks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: Smith has been outplayed by backup Devan Dubnyk this season, and although there is no sign of an imminent goalie controversy it is not sustainable for Smith to perform this poorly without losing playing time. He already seems to be losing the trust of coach Dave Tippett, who turned to Dubnyk for the start in three of the Coyotes' previous five games.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith took his fifth consecutive loss Thursday, giving up three goals on 27 shots against the Stars. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: 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. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith allowed two goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Capitals. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith will be in goal for Tuesday's game against the Capitals. Impact: Smith will look to get back on track Tuesday after losing three in a row before watching Devan Dubnyk claim victories while making the start for the Coyotes in their last two games. He will square off against a Capitals team that will enter Tuesday's game having scored just one goal in its last two games.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith allowed five goals on 25 shots in Thursday's loss to Calgary. Impact: Just another defeat for Smith, who looked like he was righting the ship over a five-game stretch of impressive play, but has since regressed, giving up nine goals over the last two games. The Coyotes will probably go with Devan Dubnyk on Friday in Vancouver as they play the second of a back-to-back set.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 13, 2014
News: Smith was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will receive the starting nod in goal Thursday against the Flames, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: Smith has paired back-to-back wins with consecutive losses over his last four turns, making it difficult for him to establish a rhythm in what has been a disappointing season overall. His 3.29 GAA and .895 save percentage over 12 games remain well below the league average, and a matchup against a Flames squad that has played much better than expected this season might not afford him a good opportunity to improve upon those numbers.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 8, 2014
News: Smith made a season-high 37 saves Friday in Arizona's 3-2 shootout win over Anaheim. Impact: Smith carries an awful 3.44 goals-against average this season, due entirely to his poor start. He has played better of late.(STATS, 4:38pm)
