Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith was on the ice for Tuesday morning's skate, and TSN has reported that he will play tonight in Game 3 against the Chicago Blackhawks Tuesday night.
Smith was hurt in the second period of Phoenix's 4-3 overtime loss on Saturday when he was struck on the head by the shoulder of Chicago's Andrew Shaw. Smith lay on the ice for five minutes but finished the game. He did not practice Monday.
Shaw skated with the Blackhawks on Tuesday morning. The NHL has suspended him for three games for the hit.
Phoenix center Martin Hanzal, who left Game 2 with an upper body injury, is a game-time decision. Left wing Lauri Korpikoski, also injured in that game, is out for Game 3.
