Flames' Smith seeking rhythm in nets versus Coyotes

Mike Smith hasn't started three consecutive games for the Calgary Flames since the opening month of the season.

His inconsistent play in net for much of the season, combined with the strong run David Rittich provided from mid-December through the end of January, left Smith more often than not riding the bench as the backup.

However, Smith is being given his chance to be the backbone of the club sitting atop the Western Conference standings. He's been tabbed to take the net against his old team Monday afternoon when the Flames play host to the Arizona Coyotes after backstopping Calgary to its 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday afternoon.
