11 wins in the month of February. There was 1 OT loss thrown in middle of the month to Vancouver. 23 out of a possible 24 points. Some of the best hockey the Coyotes have played in the last few years were played in the month of February. Guys like Radim Vrbata and Ray Whitney strung 12 games together that made their season a monster success. If they were UFAs, it would cost The Shepherd GMDM a lot more money than they are currently under contract to keep them here. Mike Smith had the month of his career as well. 6 one goal games. 2 shutouts. 3 Shootout wins. This is the reason he wanted to come and play in Phoenix. The chance to prove himself. The chance to show the world he could be and is a starting goalie. Mission Accomplished.
