He everybody! I'm doing links today! Aren't you excited? Yes? Oh, about the game? Well, I guess that's okay too. Sorry your daily knowledge bomb of everything going on about the Coyotes is late. You'll just have to bask in the light of your computer monitor while you eat that rice bowl or whatever you have. If you packed a bologna sandwich then I'm very sorry. You should plan lunch better. We'll have some semblance of a preview up later today and then it's game 5! (Which will hopefully lead to game 6 and game 7) See you then!

Smith steals Quick’s spotlight, sets NHL record of his own - ProHockeyTalk

"Mike Smith made 36 saves in his 2-0 victory at Los Angeles that enabled the Coyotes to avoid being swept by the Kings in the Western Conference Final. Smith is the seventh goaltender in NHL history to record a shutout with his team trailing three-games-to-none in a playoff series and the first ever to do so on the road."
