…And The Belt Goes To: LA Edition

Published On November 11, 2015 | By Jason Harrison | B-Sides

Last we saw of the belt, it was going to the big Swede Nicklas Grossmann.

Since then, the Coyotes defeated the Anaheim Ducks and though we didn’t get a video, we can infer from the LA Kings edition that Anders Lindback was the recipient on Monday night.

Who took the coveted belt home tonight?

None other than Mike Smith.

He was the best player on the ice for Arizona for large stretches of the night. He really needed this showing. The team needed this showing from him. He provided and now he has the belt.

Kind of strange having the backup get the belt and then award it to the starter, though, eh? Strange but good for the Coyotes. If these two are performing well enough to keep trading it off, this season will go a lot better than anticipated.
