Calgary Flames goaltender Mike Smith was seen walking after a game in which he had to be helped off the ice with an apparent injury.
Watched Mike Smith walk out of the dressing room without a limp, which is good news. Really bad groin pulls can make it hard to walk, which didn't appear to be an issue.

Smith needed assistance getting to the dressing room with 1.1 seconds remaining in what would be a 3-2 road victory for the Flames over the New York Islanders.
He looked to be in immediate discomfort after stopping a shot from Islanders captain John Tavares from the left-wing. The injury appeared to be of the lower-body variety.
Smith stopped 23 of 25 shots he faced to secure the win. David Rittich briefly replaced him.
