Smith Out For Lightning

from Lightning Strikes,

We won’t find out until tonight, when Lightning goaltender Mike Smith will see the doctor, but consider that the team is calling up Jonathan Boutin from AHL Norfolk to be the backup to Karri Ramo for tonight’s game against the Panthers and is putting Marc Denis on 24-hour re-call waivers so they can get him in here.

Smith was hurt during a breakaway drill at the end of Monday’s practice when Marty St. Louis fell over him. He was in enough pain to be down on the floor of the locker room in full gear while his left knee was being looked at by trainer Tommy Mulligan.
