Flames’ Mike Smith: ‘If I had a perfect game, I wouldn’t have anything to work on’

Published

Calgary Flames goaltender Mike Smith didn’t have the debut he had hoped for on Monday when he allowed four goals on just 13 shots in a 5-4 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Smith, acquired via trade with the Arizona Coyotes, is still working to get back to form.

“If I had a perfect game, I wouldn’t have anything to work on for the next couple of weeks,” Smith said to the media.

“It wasn’t great, but it was nice to get in a game at least. I kind of have some stuff to work on, but like I said, get the jitters out, get used to a new team. I won’t lose any sleep over it. I’ll get back to work.”

Calgary has struggled to find a permanent solution to their issues in the crease with Smith being the latest experiments following failed experiments involving Brian Elliott, Jonas Hiller and others.

“The preseason, you can’t look too deeply into it,” Smith said.

“You just want to get feeling good going into the first game, the ones that matter.”
