Mike Smith lasted two periods before being yanked in the Coyotes' 4-3 loss to the Wild on Thursday night.
Smith allowed all four goals, making just 15 saves in the loss. Jason LaBarbera came in and stopped the four shots he faced in the third. Phoenix is just not explosive enough to get by with shoddy goaltending, which is what it's been getting out of Smith too often this season. His on-and-off performances have him sporting a 2.79 goals-against average and .904 save perceentage.
