Since I don't really personally like the guy all that much, I really don't feel like defending Mike Smith much more, so I'll just say that with the Kings having an average of 38 shots on goal per game, and boatloads of scoring chances, the number of goals Smith has given up can be deceiving. The Kings have shown quite a lot offensively and Smith has not given up a bad goal. One of those 10 was an empty netter by the way.
