Smith set aside 35 of 39 shots from host Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon, hanging on for 5-4 overtime victory.

EDGE Analysis

Smith dug himself a 3-1 hole in the first period, but he'd get bailed out by Sean Monahan, who notched his first career hat trick, as well as overtime goal-supplier Michael Frolik. This was the 10th win of the season for Smith, who was making his return from an upper-body injury.

Smith will defend the cage from the Flyers in Philadelphia for Saturday's matinee, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

There were questions as to whether Smith would be fit to play in this contest considering he'd missed Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Red Wings with an upper-body injury, but the Flames have since reassigned goalie prospect Jon Gillies to AHL Stockton as the clear sign that the veteran would be all systems go for this next one. Smith has already appeared in 16 games this season, recording a 9-6-0 record, 2.63 GAA and .921 save percentage. He'll field pucks from a Flyers squad that has lost three straight but is highly accustomed to playing in Saturday afternoon games.

Smith (upper body) traveled to Philadelphia ahead of Saturday's road game against the Flyers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Flames must be confident that Smith has overcome his upper-body ailment based on their assigning Jon Gillies back to AHL Stockton on Thursday. However, it's too early to know whether he'll get the next start for a Flames team that has gone 9-6-0 on the young season, so check back for updates ahead of that game.

Smith, who has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Red Wings, is specifically day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan

EDGE Analysis

For a short while, the 35-year-old backstop had the super nebulous 'undisclosed' label affixed to his name, but now we at least know the ailment concerns his upper body. The first-year Flame has appeared in 15 of 16 games this season, so it'll be a bit strange to not see him stopping pucks against the Wings, whom he defeated with a 39-save effort last Thursday. It'll be Eddie Lack accepting that assignment Wednesday evening.

Smith (undisclosed) will not suit up for Wednesday's tilt with Detroit, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

On the positive side, Smith was still able to make the trip to the Motor City, which would seem to indicate his injury is not too severe. Wednesday's contest will be just the second game of the season in which the Ontario native doesn't make an appearance between the pipes. Eddie Lack figures to serve as the primary netminder in Smith's absence with Jon GIllies coming up from AHL Stockton.

Smith left Monday's contest against St. Louis after the first period and is reportedly dealing with a lower-body injury, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

While it's unclear the severity of the ailment, Smith wasn't present on Calgary's bench for the start of the second period. The 35-year-old had started the last six games for Calgary notching a 2.64 GAA and .917 save percentage in the contests, and if Smith misses any time Eddie Lack figures to start in his absence.

Smith will start in the net Monday against St. Louis, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old netminder has turned back the clock and is currently having one of the best seasons of his career. Despite allowing 12 goals in his last three outings, Smith still owns a 2.55 GAA and .924 save percentage alongside his 9-6-0 record. A matchup against the dangerous Blues will surely test him.

Smith stopped 39 of 41 shots in Thursday's win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Smith came up with some huge stops and rebounded nicely after surrendering five goals in a loss to Vancouver. The veteran owns a 9-6-0 record with a .924 save percentage and has been a very reliable fantasy netminder thus far. He'll continued to be relied on heavily by Calgary and makes for a solid fantasy option whenever he gets the nod.

Smith will defend the cage at home against the Red Wings on Thursday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith is coming off a pair of disappointing outings in which he gave up four goals to the Devils and five versus the Canucks -- although his offense did bail him out against New Jersey. The confines of the Scotiabank Saddledome have not been kind to the netminder this season, as he is 4-5-0 at home with a 2.95 GAA -- a significant disparity compared to his road numbers (4-1-0 with a 1.77 GAA).

Smith allowed five goals on 21 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

Smith has had a strong start with the Flames, but this was simply a miserable outing. The 35-year-old has now given up nine goals in his last two outings, bringing his save percentage down to .923 on the year. Smith is locked into the starting role and should bounce back, so we wouldn't be too concerned. The Flames will likely give him the chance to work through his current struggles, so don't hesitate to keep inserting him in your lineup.
