Smith will star Friday vs. the Red Wings.

Smith stopped 22 of 23 shots in the Flames win over the Flames last Sunday. It was a strong outing vs. a weak opponent but Smith has mostly struggled as of late, going 2-2-0 with a 3.45 GAA and .869 SV% in his last five starts. However, he draws another nice matchup tonight against a Red Wings team that is 8-11-3 on the road.

Smith will start Wednesday in Anaheim.

Smith allowed five goals on 26 shots but still walked away with the win last Thursday.
