CHICAGO - Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith was on the ice for Tuesday morning's skate, but a decision on whether he will play in Game 3 against the Chicago Blackhawks will be made prior to Tuesday night's faceoff.

Smith was hurt in the second period of Phoenix's 4-3 overtime loss on Saturday when he was struck on the head by the shoulder of Chicago's Andrew Shaw. Smith lay on the ice for five minutes but finished the game. He did not practice Monday.

Shaw skated with the Blackhawks on Tuesday morning. The NHL had not announced any disciplinary measures.

Phoenix centre Martin Hanzal, who left Game 2 with an upper body injury, is a game-time decision. Left wing Lauri Korpikoski, also injured in that game, is out for Game 3.
