Mike Smith was superb in his 1-0 shootout win over San Jose Saturday.
By making 33 stops in the shutout Smith's confidence gets a boost. "It was a good one for me because they throw a lot of stuff at your feet from all different angles, and you have to be sharp all over the ice," Smith said. "It was a good one for me to get under my belt." Smith's struggles early in the season may have been overblown, as the net minder was victimized for 12 goals in two losses to the Blackhawks, but sports a 1.50 GAA and .935 save percentage otherwise.
