Smith, Rinne square off when Coyotes host Preds

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Pekka Rinne and Mike Smith have followed each other's careers since they broke into the league in 2005 and 2006, respectively.

They watched each other become elite goaltenders when given the opportunity to play consistently. They squared off in the 2012 Western Conference semifinals and they went through dry spells in their careers that had analysts wondering if they were done.

They were not. Both 34-year-olds are among the league's top 20 in save percentage this season -- Rinne is 17th at .922; Smith is 13th at .926. Both are facing an inordinate amount of shots and both have been key reasons for any success their teams have had -- in Smith's case, perhaps the only reason.
