MIKE SMITH TAKES GREAT PLEASURE IN DASHING CALGARY'S PLAYOFF HOPES

MAY 2, 2021  (18H18)      TIM TUCKER
Goaltender Mike Smith has been on both sides of the Battle of Alberta. The 39-year-old, who is having a very good season, played two years with the Calgary Flames before signing with the Edmonton Oilers. Saturday night's game against the Flames was a bad one for Calgary as the 4-1 loss to Edmonton, combined with a 3-2 win by Montreal over Ottawa, pretty much spelled the end of any hopes of the postseason. While Calgary isn't officially out of contention, they may as well be as it would take a miracle to make it now. As for Smith, it's clear he took pleasure in knocking his former team out of the race.

Following the game, in which Smith stopped 29 of the 30 shots he faced, he was asked if dashing Calgary's playoff hopes was something he enjoyed. Smith stared straight ahead, nodded his head and smiled before replying with a simple "yup."

That pretty much said all that needed to be said, and his media availability ended there.
