Another great night for the Phoenix Coyotes as Mike Smith shut out the Chicago Blackhawks. I honestly can not think of a better gift for Jeremy Roenick whose number was retired to the Ring of Honor before that game. In addition to the Yote's winning streak going to five games, this was the Blackhawks' eighth loss in a row. Surprising no one Mike Smith was one of the NHL's 3 stars. We also have news from around the hockey world, including some three point games for Western Conference teams (ugh) and some stories that got missed yesterday.
