Mike Smith was sensational yet again, backstopping the Phoenix Coyotes to their first-ever Western Conference finals appearance after their 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Monday night.
The third-seeded Coyotes won the series 4-1, and just like he was during the regular season, Smith was an integral part. Monday, he made 32 saves, while his teammates mustered up only 17 shots on goal. In 11 playoff games this year, Smith has given up 21 goals. WIth Jonathan Quick in net for the Kings and Smith for the Yotes, goal scoring could be hard to come by as the two teams battle for a Stanley Cup finals berth.
