Smith was injured in the final seconds of the Flames’ 3-2 win against the New York Islanders on Sunday when he stopped a shot from John Tavares, and needed to be helped off the ice with an apparent lower-body injury.

He is officially listed as day-to-day. In the meantime, backup goalie David Rittich will fill in, while the team also announced the emergency call-up of Jon Gillies from AHL Stockton.

The Flames are in Boston to take on the Bruins Tuesday night at 7 p.m. ET.
