Goalie Start
Smith leads the Flames onto the ice for warmups.
Smith allowed two goals on nine shots before leaving Monday’s game vs. the Blues with an upper-body injury. The injury forced him to miss Wednesday’s game in Detroit, in which Eddie Lack was lit up, but joined the team in Philadelphia and is expected to start this afternoon. The 35-year-old has gone 4-1-0 with a 1.77 GA and .953 SV% in five road starts this season.

Suspension
The NHL has suspended Matthew Tkachuk for one game—won’t play Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia.
Tkachuk has been suspended for one game for his role in Wednesday’s brawl in Detroit. Tkachuk slashed Luke Witkowski as he left the ice following a fight, which sparked a full blown brawl. With Tkachuk out, Matt Stajan will likely draw into the lineup on Saturday.
