GLENDALE – The Coyotes will play the San Jose Sharks tonight at Jobing.com Arena tonight in their seventh and final preseason game of the 2011-12 season. The puck drops at 7 p.m. (Arizona time).
The Coyotes have won just two of six preseason games thus far, and have fallen behind 3-0 in the past two games.
"We can't be a team that five guys take the night off, and the other guys play hard," Head Coach Dave Tippett said. "If we don't have everybody playing hard, it's hard for us to be successful, and that's just the reality of our team. Even though they are just exhibition games, we need everybody putting a little something in the pot for us to be successful."
On Saturday morning, the Coyotes trimmed their training camp roster by five players, including 2011 Hobey Baker Award winner Andy Miele. Click here to read more.
Smith is expected to play the full 60 minutes in goal.
The San Jose Sharks are 5-0 this preseason and have outscored opponents 19-5. Click here to read more at sanjosesharks.com.
