Coyotes G Mike Smith has been brilliant to start the year. Not many saw this coming.

After earning his third consecutive win by stopping 39 shots, the hockey world might be forced to consider changing its stance on Mike Smith.

Are you ready for a “Save of the Year” candidate from Phoenix’s Mike Smith? We bet you aren’t, but here it is. Seeing is believing.

The Phoenix Coyotes defended their turf on Saturday night by beating Winnipeg in their home opener. Jets fans that made the trip never even had a chance to get into the game…

When you allow 52 shots in a game, you can’t blame it all on your goalie. The sad facts show that Mike Smith’s goaltending isn’t the only problem for the Coyotes, who dropped a 6-3 loss to the Sharks that wasn’t even that close.

Losing Ilya Bryzgalov in the offseason created a huge hole between the pipes for the Phoenix Coyotes. Does the organization really think that Mike Smith can fill the void left by the star Russian netminder? Absolutely.
Oct 3, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT
People have vastly underestimated Phoenix over the last two seasons and the Coyotes have consistently exceeded expectations. But without Ilya Bryzgalov around and question marks in net, is this the season when the Coyotes fall from the playoff race?

Coyotes GM Don Maloney talks to PHT about the offseason, new acquisitions, and insultingly low expectations from the experts.

We know that the Coyotes are seemingly always in peril off the ice, but are they in big trouble this season when actually playing the games?
Jul 27, 2011, 1:52 PM EDT
The Coyotes probably hope that he doesn’t play at the NHL level, but they added some depth to their goalie group by signing Justin Pogge to a one-year, two-way contract.

There are plenty of goaltenders who will find themselves in new cities next season; here are a few who will face the most pressure to immediately perform.
Jul 12, 2011, 4:34 PM EDT
The Coyotes face a tall order in trying to replace Ilya Bryzgalov, but if you ask Sean Burke & Co., Mike Smith could be the man to get the job done.

The Avalanche traded their 2012 first round pick and a conditional second rounder to the Capitals for Semyon Varlamov’s negotiating rights. This post takes a look at the impact of this deal for both teams as well as how this changes the free agent goalie market.
Jul 1, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Free agency day figures to be a big one for a lot of teams, but which ones are worth keeping a closer eye on today? We’ve got a few that are worth eyeballing.

The Lightning still have a lot of questions to answer this off-season, but they crossed off one of the biggest ones by re-signing top goalie Dwayne Roloson to a one-year, $3 million deal.

Tampa Bay went a lot further than many thought they’d go in the playoffs but still came up short against the Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals. We’ve got a few things that went wrong for them that led to their demise.
May 28, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT
The Lightning had a great run, but it could come at a price. GM Steve Yzerman has some big decisions to make as important players (including Steven Stamkos and Dwayne Roloson) approach restricted and unrestricted free agency.
May 24, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT
Guy Boucher announced that Dwayne Roloson will start instead of Mike Smith in Game 6. Can Roloson lead the Lightning to another comeback from elimination?
May 24, 2011, 4:12 PM EDT
Last night’s Game 5 in Boston gave us quite the smorgasbord of stuff to think about including Tim Thomas’ toughness, Guy Boucher’s curious goaltending choices, Tomas Kaberle’s play, and the life of Steve Downie.
May 24, 2011, 1:11 AM EDT
Guy Boucher has a tough choice to make in Game 6. Will he go back to Dwayne Roloson or stick with Mike Smith? This post breaks down the pros and cons of going in both directions.
May 23, 2011, 11:57 PM EDT
The Lightning dominated long stretches of Game 5, but Tim Thomas made 33 saves to help the Bruins steal a 3-1 win. Read all about how Boston earned their 3-2 series lead in this post.
May 23, 2011, 2:31 PM EDT
Wondering who the Lighting will start in goal for tonight’s Game 5 in Boston? Guy Boucher isn’t sharing that information.
May 22, 2011, 11:31 AM EDT
Five thoughts today has us looking closer at Teddy Purcell’s big playoffs, Claude Julien pocketing his timeout, Steve Downie’s misfortune, and whether there’s a goalie controversy in Tampa now.
May 21, 2011, 5:38 PM EDT
Once again a 3-0 lead wasn’t good enough for the Bruins as Tampa Bay rallied back to take out Boston 5-3 to even up the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2.
