Mike Smith (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game versus Nashville.

Mike Smith (groin) won't be available for Tuesday's game against Boston.

Coach Glen Gulutzan said Smith will undergo further evaluation Monday to determine his status moving forward. The Flames will bring someone up from the minors, so look for Jon Gillies to serve as David Rittich's backup for now.

Mike Smith's injury appears to be to his groin.

Smith was forced to leave Sunday's game with only a couple of ticks of the clock remaining after making his 23rd save of the game. "It’s tough … you never want to see it (happen). But we’ll deal with it when we know exactly what we’re dealing with," said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan. "It would be a huge blow for our team. Arguably, he’s been our MVP. But he’s a guy that takes such good care of himself, and we’re hoping this will be minor. But if it isn’t, we’ve got other guys that can come in. It’s what other teams have had to do this year." Consider him day-to-day for now but an update should be available in the next day or two.
