Smith will start Game 3 in Colorado.

Smith allowed three goals on 39 shots in the Flames 3-2 OT loss to the Avalanche in Game 2. It wasn't as impressive as his Game 1 shutout, but Smith was tough to beat once again and the Flames will continue to be the favourites to win this series as long as he is playing well. Smith was 10-8-1 with a 2.64 GAA and .908 SV% on the road this season but playoffs Mike Smith seems like a different goalie.

Rittich led the Flames onto the ice for warmups.

Rittich allowed two goals on 25 shots in the Flames win in Los Angeles on Monday. Rittich has won five of his last six starts while posting a 2.35 GAA and .913 SV%. Rittich has been excellent but he is a bit of a risky start with seven of the Flames regulars sitting out tonight in Anaheim.
