Smith's incredible stick save

ARI@SJS: Smith reaches back with stick to rob Braun

Mike Smith uses his body to turn aside an initial shot, then reaches back with his stick to rob Justin Braun, keeping the game scoreless

Arizona Coyotes goalie Mike Smith showed that he was an expert stickhandler last weekend at the 2017 Coors Light NHL All-Star Skills Competition.

Smith stole the show during the Four Line Challenge, putting a puck into a tiny opening from 200 feet away.

On Saturday, he showed he can use the stick for saves too.

San Jose Sharks forward Mikkel Boedker moved in on a rebound and had an open net. Or at least he thought he did.

Smith, who for a second appeared to think he had caught the initial shot from Justin Braun in the midsection, reacted in time to get the blade of hit stick on Boedker's attempt.

Seriously though, maybe it's time to start trying Smith's glove side.
