Mike Smith's MRI results better than looked

By Pierre LeBrun



Well it could have certainly been worse.

The Phoenix Coyotes said Tuesday that netminder Mike Smith was day to day with a lower body injury -- which is believed to be a right knee injury.

The early guess-timate I'm hearing is seven to 10 days after an initial MRI was done Tuesday, which is much better than the way it looked Monday night with Smith writhing in pain on the ice.

But we won't know an exact time frame until Smith is re-evaluated Friday in Phoenix.
