Mike Smith was good, not great

The playoffs are a different beast.

For the Calgary Flames, they just proved they don’t have a playoff built team, as many expected.

One of the surprises was in net, Mike Smith, who was a .944 goaltender the last time he was in playoffs played his best hockey of the year in the postseason.

But let’s pump the breaks on saying Smith played “great” these playoffs. He was good at best. Game 3 is the biggest game of the series and six get past him with a .893 Sv%. Can’t have that in playoffs. First elimination game, five get past him with an .844 sv%. Can’t have that in the playoffs.

So yes, Smith was one of the brighter spots on this vastly dull Flames roster, but end of the day, no one was even close to good enough to get past the first round.
