Smith will start Friday vs. the Kings.

Smith allowed one goal on 29 shots in the Flames win in Arizona on Sunday. It was an important game for Smith, who is fighting for starts with David Rittich. Smith is 2-3-0 with a 2.86 GAA and .891 SV% in November and draws another solid matchup with the Kings in town—especially on the tail-end of a back-to-back.

Smith will start Thursday vs. the Canadiens.

Smith surrendered two goals on 28 shots in the Flames 3-1 loss i San Jose on Sunday. Smith has actually been much better on the road than he has been on home-ice. Through six starts in Calgary, Smith is 3-2-1 with a 4.34 GAA and .840 SV%, so you may be best to avoid him tonight as they host the Canadiens.

Smith will start Wednesday in Anaheim.

Smith allowed five goals on 26 shots but still walked away with the win last Thursday. Giving up four-plus goals has not been rare for Smith this season, who has allowed at least four goals in six of his 10 starts this season—posting a 3.71 GAA, .871 SV% and one shutout overall. He makes for a decent option against a Ducks team that is on the tail-end of a back-to-back and have lost eight of their last nine games.

Smith will start Monday in Toronto.

Smith allowed three goals on 27 shots in the Flames shootout loss to the Capitals on Saturday. It was a slightly better performance than the 9-1 loss to the Penguins on Thursday, but Smith has now lost three straight with a 5.15 GAA and .833 SV%. Tonight he faces a high-powered Maple Leafs team that will be missing Auston Matthews, who suffered a shoulder injury on Saturday.

Smith was pulled after allowing six goals on 21 shots in the Flames 9-1 loss to the Penguins on Thursday. Smith has had a dreadful start to the season, posting a 4.10 GAA and .866 SV% in his first seven starts.
