Smith will start Thursday in St. Louis.

Smith stopped all 43 shots that he faced in the Flames shutout win in Nashville on Tuesday. Smith has had an inconsistent start to the season, allowing a combined eight goals on 85 shots (.906 SV%) in his first three games of the year. He’s a risky option in St. Louis. The Blues are deep and talented, but have struggled defensively to start the season.

Smith faced Vancouver in his first two starts of the season, allowing a combined eight goals on 42 shots (.810 SV%).

Smith will start the Flames season opener in Vancouver.

During his first season with the Flames, Smith started 55 games for the second straight seasons and went 25-22-6 with a 2.65 GAA, .916 SV% and three shutouts. Smith will be playing behind one of the best bluelines in the NHL and a solid group of forwards, making him a candidate for 30-plus wins for the first time since 2012. Smith is a great option on opening night vs. a rebuilding Canucks team.

Smith (lower-body) returned to Flames practice on Tuesday.

Smith is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

The Flames avoided disaster as an MRI revealed that Smith’s injury is not as serious as originally feared. What looked like a groin injury turned out not to be groin related. However, the lower-body ailment will keep him out of at least the next two games and he will be re-evaluated after that.

Smith was forced to leave Sunday’s game with a lower-body injury and will be re-evaluated on Monday.

Smith almost escaped Sunday’s game in Brooklyn healthy and with a win, but he went down while flexing out his right pad with less than three seconds left. Smith had to be helped off of the ice after suffering what looked like a groin injury. This would be a massive blow to the Flames playoff hopes—they are locked in a battle in the tight Western Conference. Expect an update from the Flames over the next 24 hours.
