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.

Smith ended a five-game winning streak by winning his last two starts with a 2.48 GAA and .922 SV%.
