Mike Smith doesn't appear to be hampered by a lower body injury any longer and will make his fourth straight start. He's been dominant against the Avalanche throughout his career, owning a 8-1-1 record with a 1.42 GAA. (Updated 4/26/13).
What can really be said about Mike Smith's stunning 2011-12 campaign? The goalie, who found himself in the AHL just a season ago, posted a 38-18-10 record, 2.21 GAA and .930 save percentage in the regular season and led one of the most surprising postseason runs in recent memory. While it might be slightly unrealistic to ask Smith to duplicate his numbers from last year, the retention of Phoenix's own goalie whisperer in coach Sean Burke should reassure fantasy owners that Smith might be able to repeat. And the outstanding blue line talent in front of Smith helps make him a top netminding candidate heading into 2012-13. (Updated 8/14/12)
