He was the NHLs third star of December after helping Columbus go 10-1-1 to reach .500.We looked at some stuff from games last year we played against them and we had some success with some traffic around there, Tippett said.

The struggling goalie stopped 23 shots.I felt good. I felt like I was prepared, Smith said. Mentally I felt I was ready to get back in there.Fedor Tyutin scored his first goal in 60 games, and James Wisniewski and Ryan Johansen also scored for the Blue Jackets, who struggled in their defensive zone at the beginning of a four-game trip.You hate to do that to our goalie, winger Matt Calvert said.

If youre picked to do that job, youve got to do it. Thats what we needed to have. He was a little bit under the weather, too, and he hung in there.A rare penalty helped, too.Bobrovsky lost his stick on a scramble in front, making one save with his shoulder before Johansen threw Bobrovsky stick back to him.Johansen was called for a throwing-the-stick penalty, setting up Gagnes goal to put Arizona ahead to stay, 3-2.That led to a stress-free final period for Smith in his first start since he was pulled in a 7-1 loss to Vancouver on Dec. 22. He improved to 6-15-2.It was a step in the right direction for Mike, Smith said.NOTES: The Coyotes took issue with Jack Skilles hit that dropped Ekman-Larsson along the boards. Ekman-Larsson returned in the third period. Joe Vitale, who returned after missing two games with injury, later engaged Skille in a long fight. I thought Joe did a very nice job. Ill just say that about his whole game, Tippett said. ... The Coyotes lost D David Schlemko to Dallas in a waiver claim Saturday. Blue Jackets D Dalton Prout took two minor penalties.
