Mike Smith Has Groin Injury

Standard Spin: Just when things were going well for Mike Smith, he is now suffering from a groin injury sustained on Tuesday.  The Coyotes' #1 goalie did not dress for Wednesday's game against the Hurricanes; Jason LaBarbera played and picked up the win.  Smith is day-to-day, but there is no word yet as to when he might return.
