Mike Smith injured in Coyotes loss

When inconsistent play hasn’t dogged Mike Smith, injuries often have.

The Arizona Coyotes didn’t just lose 7-4 to the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday; they also lost Smith to a lower-body injury.

Head coach Dave Tippett hopes to know more about the big goalie’s condition on Wednesday, as he told the Arizona Republic’s Sarah McLellan.

“Could be a short-term thing. I don’t know,” Tippett said. “He’s played very well, that’s for sure.”

You can see video of the injury above this post’s headline.

Despite seeing just 11:38 of on-ice action, Louis Domingue allowed the same number of goals (three on 11 shots) as Smith gave up (three on 30) all night.

Domingue appeared in 39 games in 2015-16, so at least he’s seen some NHL action if Smith misses some time.
