GLENDALE -- Jason LaBarbera will start in goal tonight for the Coyotes when they play the San Jose Sharks at HP Pavilion.

LaBarbera stopped 21 of 22 shots in a 5-1 win over Columbus on Wednesday night after relieving starter Mike Smith with 9:00 left in the first period.

Smith is nursing a minor lower-body injury.

"Basically we caught it very early," Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett told FOX Sports Arizona reporter Todd Walsh on Thursday afternoon. "Hopefully it's nothing that lingers on too long."

The Coyotes on Thursday recalled goalie Chad Johnson from the American Hockey League. Tippett said Johnson would dress for the game and serve as LaBarbera's backup.
